“I found this training course very informative and would highly recommend all organizations to work with Plan to Protect to impliment the highest standards of care and protection for youth.”

Susan McCormack (Scouts Canada, Ottawa)

“Plan to Protect is one of the most comprehensive training programs for abuse preventing that there is. But Plan to Protect is about more than just policies. It is about educating churches and organizations about the issue of abuse and encourages all of the attendees to take the issue of abuse seriously. It is about changing our hearts and attitudes regarding abuse. ”

Dale Ingraham (Executive Director of Speaking the Truth in Love, New York)

“The Plan to Protect training was incredibly useful. The training was very clear and the trainers were very willing to answer any questions during the process. Plan to Protect is something our camp values ​​and we appreciate the willingness from the Plan to Protect organization in helping us create a safe environment for our guests and staff. ”

Janelle Conway (Rivers Edge Camp, Cremona)
