Safe Places is a City of Swift Current initiative that began in 2016. with the intent to improve the services and support offered to youth in our community. The very first initiative we launched was Safe Places- Youth Certification. This program was implemented to improve quality programming while reducing the potential risks to children and youth.
Successful applicants receive a Safe Places – Youth Certified I.D number and certificate which is valid for 4 years. All Youth certified Individuals appear in our online Public Directory
We encourage all Youth Service Providers to mandate Safe Places in our community and encourage anyone working or connecting with you to become Youth Certified.
Safe Places can and has been implemented as a best practice for communities and organization provincially and nationally.
