E-learning module for young volunteers

The Protestant Youth Organization in Bavaria (EJB) has been working to prevent sexual violence in the region for many years. Their manual “Bei uns nicht?!” (“Not Here?!”) was created to provide guidelines and support for the practical work. Staff and persons of trust now regularly attend training courses and events on child protection.

The project Childhood supports is digital learning module for youth volunteers and young adults who act as mentors and guides during church leisure activities, youth camps, and other events. The e-learning module is an easy way for youth leaders to gain knowledge in the field of prevention – from their own computers, tablets or smart phones – and makes them better equipped to protect children in the church from sexual assault or violence.

The e-learning module is the second part in the church´s training program on child protection.  The long-term is to make it available to all providers of youth and leisure activities.
