The Journey of Life Community Workshop to Support Children Action Workshop 9: Protecting our children from abuse

The Journey of Life (JOL) series is a community mobilization tool which facilitates community conversations and action planning about important issues. The JOL community conversations bring together diverse groups of people to engage in a dialogue about a vision and priorities for improving child wellbeing in the area. The goal of the conversation is not to reconcile differences, but to listen to and appreciate each viewpoint, looking for areas of common ground that lead to specific recommendations on the issues that the conversations focus on. The people who participate in a community conversation can all live in the same community, or they may be a community who work together at the state or local level on behalf of young children and their families. These conversations encourage the transfer of knowledge and skills within a community and between communities.
 

Journey of Life Action Workshops are called action workshops (as opposed to JOL awareness workshops) because they result in an action plan in which the community stakeholders develop a plan to address the issue under consideration. This Community Implementation Guide is designed to facilitate the actual community conversation with community members.
