Safe Places – Youth Certified is a City of Swift Current initiative that began in 2016. It is a program designed to support quality programming while reducing the potential risks to children and youth.
Safe Places requires individuals to obtain suitable criminal and vulnerable sector checks, complete Respect Group online training related to Bullying, Abuse, Harassment and Discrimination and submit an application form to become ‘Youth Certified’.
Successful applicants receive a Safe Places – Youth Certified I.D number and card which is valid for 3 years. We encourage all Youth Service Providers to mandate Safe Places in our community and encourage anyone working with you to become Youth Certified.
