Seashore Family Literacy Offers Free Training
Seashore Family Literacy in Waldport is hosting two free trainings in the upcoming weeks that are open to the community – one is about volunteerism, the other is about empowering children.
This first training is required for persons interested in volunteering at Seashore Family Literacy. The one-hour session will begin at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at DaNoble House, 125 NW Spruce St. It will cover the history of Seashore Family Literacy, roles and expectations, explanation of programs and opportunities, and the opportunity to meet the staff.
The second training is the “Stewards of Children” program on recognizing and preventing child abuse. It will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, at Community Presbyterian Church, 485 Bay St. in Waldport. This training is mandatory for Seashore volunteers, and is open to all interested citizens.
Created by the Darkness to Light nonprofit organization (www.D2L.org), the Stewards of Children training program provides simple and effective ways to prevent, recognize, and react to abuse. In essence, it changes the way adults see their role as protectors of children, empowering them with the confidence and knowledge in order to react responsibly on behalf of children.
The nationally-acclaimed training is being presented free of charge by the Lincoln County Children’s Advocacy Center, in partnership with Seashore Family Literacy.
