Ther Support Center for Child Advocates, in conjuction with the Pennsylvania Bar Institute, will be holding a Volunteers Training Workshop entitled, How to Handle a Child Abuse Case, on March 15, 2012 at The CLE Conference Center, in the Wanamaker Bldg., 10th Floor, Ste. 1010, Philadelphia, PA.

Advocacy for children who have been abused or neglected represents a commitment to the present needs and future development of society's most vulnerable members. We stand to confront the lasting harms of maltreatment, which some children suffer, first in the places they know-home, school, or play-then in a justice system that fails to protect or provide services to safeguard them. The Support Center for Child Advocates is founded on the belief that trained professionals and an educated community working together can make a difference in the lives of child victims.

This course provides certification for eligibility to receive court appointments for dependency cases in Philadelphia County. Attend this volunteer workshop and hear experts in the field of child advocacy explain how you can make a difference in the lives of child victims.
