Tuesday, August 20, 2019, 12:30-2:00 p.m. ET | U.S. Center for SafeSport: Creating a SafeSport Culture
The U.S. Center for SafeSport is an independent non-profit organization focused on ending all forms of abuse in sport, while carrying out its mission of making athlete well-being the centerpiece of the nation’s sports culture through abuse prevention, education, and accountability. Based in Denver, Colorado, the Center became federally authorized under the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017. As a result of this legislation, the Center is entrusted with the exclusive authority to respond to reports of allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct within the United States Olympic and Paralympic Movement, and to develop training, oversight practices, policies, and procedures to prevent the abuse, including emotional, physical, sexual abuse, of amateur athletes participating in amateur athletic activities.
Understand the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and SafeSport Authorization Act of 2017, and the role of the U.S. Center for SafeSport.
Understand the Center’s Response & Resolution process, youth protection, and if/how it intersects with individuals at your institution.

HEPNet webinars provide members with valuable, current information relevant to protecting children and youth in higher education institutions. The webinar platform has a free-form Chat Box. Throughout the program, participants use the Chat Box to type in their own questions, answers, comments, concerns, suggested resources, and other thoughts. Webinar presenters sometimes use the Chat Box, or a similar polling feature, to solicit participants’ feedback on specific issues. View Chat Box Protocol for more information on how this conversation may or may not be used.
