SAFETY works to educate, and provide youth with skills and knowledge that will benefit them as they continue to grow in hopes to further the safety of youth and the community. 

What to Expect

Participants will meet in groups of 6 to 10 youth of similar age and development level with a facilitator once a week for six weeks.  Each group will be 1 hour and 30 minutes in length and will be held at Clackamas County Juvenile Department during evening hours. (Time and Dates to be determined)

Learning Topics


Opening and Introduction: Youth will be welcomed back to group, have their homework checked in, and receive a brief overview of what to expect for group each day.

Instruction: Each week will cover a different topic around fire safety and risk taking behavior.  Through instruction and group discussion youth will explore each topic to build understanding.

Activity: Youth will then complete an in-group activity which ranges from further group discussion, worksheets, or problem solving activities.  These activities will usually include a group portion as well as an individual portion.

Homework Assignment/Close: To reinforce the skills learned in each group, youth will be assigned homework that they will need to complete before returning to the next session.  This homework often involves parent participation and a signature to assure that parents have seen the work that youth are completing.
