The Shield of Protection is a unique program designed by the Beau Biden Foundation’s experts in law, education, and law enforcement to help ensure schools and youth-serving organizations have the best policies, procedures, and programming in place to help protect children from all forms of child abuse and neglect.

Population(s) Served

During this 60-minute workshop for educators, mentors, coaches, administrators, and directors of schools and youth-serving organizations, we discuss how policy can help professionals establish healthy boundaries in an online environment with the students they serve. Attendees will learn how to communicate with students in an online environment that maintains observable and interruptible interactions and how to recognize abuse and neglect through a webcam.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Adults

During this 60-minute workshop, adults will learn how predators groom children, families, and organizations to isolate and abuse their victims. Using case studies, participants will learn the signs of grooming and the strategies predators use to find and lure victims.

Population(s) Served

During this 60-minute workshop for adults, participants will learn about mandatory reporting statutes, the different forms of abuse and neglect, how to recognize the signs of abuse and neglect, how to respond to a disclosure of abuse, and how and when to make a report. This workshop also involves scenario-based discussion.

Population(s) Served

Commonly known as “human trafficking,” this 60-minute workshop for adults examines how children are trafficked in our neighborhoods, vacation destinations, and retail shops through predatory grooming and coercion tactics. Participants will learn how children are particularly susceptible to trafficking, whether online or through in-person interactions, and how to recognize indicators, intervene and report suspected trafficking. Safeguarding children from sexual exploitation and abuse significantly reduces their risk of becoming trafficked, making primary prevention strategies essential to preventing trafficking of children and adults.

Population(s) Served

The stresses and hurdles associated with COVID-19 are a once-in-a-generation experience that will leave a lasting impact on us all – especially children and teens. Whether struggling with increased exposure to cyberbullies and threats from online predators or direct abuse and neglect in their own home – children will need our help to navigate the impact of this crisis.

The workshop will help educators, youth-serving professionals, parents, and caregivers meet this (and other trauma) head-on – in a helpful, healthy, and practical way.
