Part Two of a two part series

The systems and structures in place to support kids and youth after they experience violence or abuse can feel complicated and complex. This is especially true when trying to manage varying confidentiality and reporting requirements. To help support better wrap-around services for young people, the Oregon Attorney General’s Sexual Assault Task Force (SATF), in partnership with experts across Oregon, is hosting two webinars this fall to coincide with the release of new resources to support better partnerships across mandatory reporting and confidential youth advocacy services.

WHO ARE THESE FOR: Anyone who provides services to youth and particularly those in youth focused organizations/institutions (ex. schools, family services programs, juvenile justice programs, public health, etc.), and those providing crisis response services to youth (ex. domestic and sexual violence advocacy programs, child advocacy programs, etc.).


Sign up for one or both of these learning opportunities today! They will be recorded and available afterwards as well, so please sign up even if you can’t make it if you would like to be notified as soon as the recordings are available!

This webinar focuses on establishing and improving partnerships between institutions and organizations whose primary role is serving and supporting kids and youth (like schools) and confidential community resources (like DVSA programs). As more of these institutions partner with community resources on violence and abuse prevention, there is an increased need to build robust, well-rounded response systems that can meet each young person’s needs. When prevention occurs, people often start to recognize and name their experiences with violence/abuse, and then begin reaching out for supports. One approach or model will not work for everyone, and all young people deserve equitable access to health, safety, and supports. Building more comprehensive partnerships can help ensure all kids can get the supports they need.
