New Training for Professionals

The CAC's Support to End Exploitation Now (SEEN) program collaborated with our partners at My Life My Choice to develop a new training for professionals focused on supporting LGBTQ+ youth.

The Identification & Trauma-Informed Engagement of At-Risk & Exploited LGBTQ+ Youth training was informed by conducting stakeholder interviews and youth focus groups. In this training, professionals will learn about the specific needs of LGBTQ+ youth who are at-risk and exploited as well as the challenges they face when attempting to meet those needs. Professionals will also discuss strategies for effectively creating safe spaces and empowering youth to engage with multidisciplinary teams.

The CAC will be there to share resources with the community, so be sure to stop by and visit us!

Provider Networking Day

The CAC hosted our partners from Boston Medical Center's Good Grief Program and the Child Witness to Violence Project for cross-program information-sharing and networking.

We appreciated learning about how these two programs provide specialized support to children who have experienced violence, loss and other traumatic events, and sharing an overview of our work with them.

It was a wonderful day of building relationships and learning—something we hope to replicate with additional partner agencies in the future! If you're interested in participating in a Provider Networking Day, please contact Erica Chepulis.

Community Connections

Our partners at the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center connected us with Quincy Community Action Programs to deliver our Stop Block Talk internet safety training. Co-hosted with Norfolk Advocates for Children, the training was delivered in both English and Mandarin to more than a dozen staff and caregivers.

We love referrals! If you know an organization that would benefit from one of our trainings, let us know!
