Join us via Zoom (registration link in the event details section) to learn about the status of current safety issues and best practices to keep our youth safe, resilient, and thriving. Presentations will be hosted at 4 pm on March 25th and April 29th. Both sessions will include presentations by the Ogden Police Department followed by a Q&A facilitated by the Junior League of Ogden.

This series is free and open to everyone, simply join our zoom link with your microphone muted, and drop any questions you may have in the chat box. Each participant will be sent a follow-up overview of the training to include notes, further information from the Q&A, and additional resources.
