Learning more about child abuse and prevention is one key to unlocking the pathway to supporting thriving families.
At Prevent Child Abuse Georgia, a new group of ambassadors is now engaged in just that – deepening their awareness and developing advocacy skills.
The first-ever Prevent Child Abuse Georgia Ambassadors class gathered on Aug. 26 for initial training and group discussion.
The 10-month leadership development program aims to activate a cadre of informed individuals to help amplify PCA Georgia’s mission to prevent child abuse and neglect in their communities.
This program is designed for college students, professionals, or community members seeking knowledge and skills to make a difference.
“The PCA Georgia Ambassador program brings together passionate individuals with the knowledge and tools to champion children and families. We believe this is a successful recipe to impact change for Georgia communities,” said PCA Georgia Assistant Director Dr. Jyll Walsh.
The program will prepare its participants through educational workshops and hands-on experience. Ambassadors will gain valuable skills to positively impact the lives of children and families across the state. Activities include monthly workshops, volunteer experiences, fundraising, and attendance at an awareness event.
Atlanta attorney Daysha Scott is a new ambassador and attended the inaugural meeting.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the kickoff program!” Scott said. “I can tell the plans PCA Georgia has for its ambassador program have been planned with great thought and will provide us with the necessary tools to continue spreading PCA’s mission and, ultimately, serve the families and children within our community!”
