Trust-Funded Providers MUST UPDATE Staff Positions on Trust Central
In August, the website used to register for all training events and to take online courses will change. This change will affect ALL Trust-funded providers.

With this change, in addition to the great training classes and online courses currently offered by The Children’s Trust and our partners, staff of Trust-funded programs will have access to a FREE catalog of hundreds of online courses in the areas of child/youth care, professional development, and safety practices. The first step is for your Trust Central Agency Admin to include staff information in Trust Central. All staff whose position is partially or fully funded through a Trust contract and required to take training must be included in Trust Central.
