Prevention & Training

CARES Northwest offers on-site training to schools and community groups. We focus on violence prevention, helping adults create safe environments for youth, and training professionals in child maltreatment, trauma, and mandatory reporting. Our school approach includes classes on violence prevention for middle and high school students and workshops for school staff. In the community, we offer presentations to youth serving organizations such as pre-schools and daycare, Head Start, Boys and Girls Club, and faith centers.
