The First North American Child Protection Conference was a successful beginning. A group of dedicated devotees interested in increasing child protection met for 2 days for seminars and discussion at a retreat center in the woods of North Carolina.

Here is what some people had to say after attending the first North American Child Protection Conference-

The weekend was composed of seminars that ranged from Signs and Types of Abuse; How to Handle a Disclosure; The Importance of Educating Children How to Protect Themselves and group discussions on subjects such as why screening residents and volunteers is necessary. At the conclusion of the conference we drafted some steps we can take right now to increase safety in our communities, ideas on how to continue networking with each other, and increase the scope of outreach as well as plans for the next Child Protection Conference!
