Mentoring Training

The primary duty of youth service providers 

is to insure the safety of the children they serve.  


To this end, Becky Cooper and SAFE Mentoring developed comprehensive training sessions that focus on recommended tools and practices to screen volunteers for child safety.  SAFE training is relevant and adaptable to all audiences to whom child safety is vital, including parents, youth organization staff, Board members, Schools, recreation programs, and more.  SAFE training covers:


  • Red Flags in Screening and Monitoring Volunteers

  • Research on Child Predators

  • Victims, Perpetrators, and Dynamics of Abuse

  • Use of “Informed Intuition” in Screening

  • Prevention Tools and Resources

  • Case Studies

  • Primary Organizational Responsibilities


Training sessions are customized to agency needs.  They range from 90-minute introductory sessions to comprehensive 1.5 day sessions with follow-up support.  The comprehensive sessions are led by both Becky Cooper and Steve McEwan, retired San Jose Police Department Child Exploitation law enforcement expert.

“SAFE has been a high-quality and extremely important training

for programs in our service area.  We appreciate that

the material has been developed by experts in the field.

SAFE’s follow up support has been exceptional.”
