It’s About Respect: An Interview With Sheldon Kennedy On Respect Group Training
Starting on July 19, 2016, Scouts Canada adopted Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders training that was developed by Respect Group, a Canadian leader in youth safety and abuse prevention training. This training has replaced Scouts Canada’s Child and Safety (CYS) Training for Volunteers.
Sheldon Kennedy is a long time child-abuse activist and the Director of the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre, the first full service operation of victims of child abuse in Canada. He is also the Co-Founder of Respect Group, the very organization that developed the new training that Scouts Canada has adopted. Mr Kennedy was kind enough to sit down with Scouting Life to discuss Child and Youth Safety and Respect Group training. MORE
