As part of the recently updated training for Mandated Reporters in Minnesota, a module for Youth Program staff is now available. This no-cost, self-paced 15-minute training is designed for employees or supervisors of private or public youth recreation programs identified by law who must make a report if they have reason to believe that maltreatment of a child has occurred.
The training features quizzes, interactive content, and a certificate of completion at the end. It differs from the general Mandated Reporter Training in that it has a tighter focus on youth program staff. It also features a mini-game to critically engage learners in a fun way.
By the end of this training, learners will be able to 1) classify the duty of a mandated reporter in a youth program, 2) identify that abuse is the type of maltreatment youth program staff must report, and 3) identify what information needs to be included in a report.
