Welcome

Submit a Proposal

We are accepting workshop proposals for the Learning & Leadership Summit that will increase awareness, knowledge and/or skills related to the theme of nurturing positive childhoods and that align with one of three distinct tracks of Providers, Leadership, and System Building.

Let’s Make Prevention a Priority.

Advocating for prevention. Building community capacity. Raising awareness. Prevent Child Abuse NC ensures that prevention is a priority in North Carolina and that all communities have the knowledge, skills, and resources to prevent child abuse and neglect at the local level.

Online Trainings

We encourage all NC citizens and professionals can take our free, online trainings: What is Prevention? and Recognizing & Responding to Suspicions of Child Maltreatment. 

Prevention Action Network

An affiliation of agencies and individuals invested in developing strong families, supportive communities and improved outcomes for NC’s children.

Recognizing & Reporting Child Maltreatment

North Carolina law requires all adults to report suspected child maltreatment.

Connections Matter NC

By building supportive, resilient communities, we’re creating strong foundations for healthy brain development.
