“I found this training course very informative and would highly recommend all organizations to work with Plan to Protect
® to implement 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)

“This course can really reveal how unprepared we are to deal with or prevent abuse in our churches.  Thank you for getting us started on this important matter!” Warren Dungen (Roman Catholic Diocese of Prince Albert)

“This course was incredibly valuable for us – both as individuals and an organization – as we work toward becoming the safest organization for youth to volunteer with. Thank you!” Matt Tod (Associate Director - Learning & Development, WE.org)

I think that the Admin Leader and the Train the Trainer courses should be taken together.  I see the “whole” picture after taking both courses.” Sara Myers (Unionville Baptist Church)
