Children in Disaster Training – Child Friendly Spaces

Walnut 101 | January 19, 2018 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

“Child Friendly Spaces” training is designed for those who have responsibility for working with children in disasters, particularly in emergency shelters. It will include information on understanding and supporting children in disasters, best practices on site selection, organization and set-up of the spaces, and guidance that addresses children’s unique needs and promotes child safety and well-being while in temporary locations.

It is one of three FREE workshops on Protecting Children in Disaster sponsored by Wayne Community College’s Early Childhood Education program and the Partnership for Children of Wayne County. It is taught by Save the Children International.
