Vision Change Win Training Series Registration


About the Training Series
The training series is a chance for organizations to develop and deepen their safety and security infrastructure. At each level of the training series, organizations learn concrete strategies for identifying and addressing potential risks and developing safety structures that are scaled to the organization's unique capacity, adaptive to changing conditions, and trauma-informed. The Training Series is successive so each training is meant to build off of the last. Participants should complete 101 prior to attending 201; complete 101 & 201 prior to completing 301.
