Seashore Family Literacy in Waldport is hosting two free trainings in the coming weeks that are open to the community.
This first training is required for persons interested in volunteering at Seashore Family Literacy. The one-hour session will begin at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at DaNoble House, 125 NW Spruce St. It will cover the history of Seashore Family Literacy, roles and expectations, explanation of programs and opportunities, and the opportunity to meet the staff.
The second training is the “Stewards of Children” program on recognizing and preventing child abuse. It will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, at Community Presbyterian Church, 485 Bay St. in Waldport. This training is mandatory for Seashore volunteers and is open to all interested community members.
Created by the Darkness to Light nonprofit organization (www.D2L.org), the Stewards of Children training program provides simple and effective ways to prevent, recognize, and react to abuse. The nationally-acclaimed training is being presented without charge by the Lincoln County Children’s Advocacy Center, in partnership with Seashore Family Literacy.
