Session 8: MBF Prevention Education Programs Facilitator Training

Be trained as a facilitator to deliver MBF Child Safety Matters™ (grades K-5) and MBF Teen Safety Matters™ (grades 6-8), prevention education programs provided to Florida’s public schools at no cost. Learn how to help your students prevent and respond to critical safety issues including bullying, cyberbullying, digital abuse and dangers, relationship abuse, trafficking, and all types of child abuse.

Florida law mandates that all schools provide child abuse and bullying prevention education to students, parents/guardians, and school staff. Beyond that, it is wise to educate and empower children with knowledge and strategies to help protect them from the dangers they face in society today.

The programs are practical and easily implemented, research based, and fully supported by the US Department of Justice, Florida Attorney General, Florida Education Cooperative Planning Team, Florida Department of Education, and Florida Department of Children and Families.
