Yaroslava is a juvenile prevention officer of Koriukivka Police Department, Chernihiv Region. She decided to become a prevention trainer to effectively conduct crime and drug abuse prevention among children. In the previous academic year Yaroslava was taking part in the project, “Effective Prevention”, where eight-graders, 13-14 years old, were the target audience. That project and its results prompted the police officer to continue study and master skills in the area of evidence based prevention among children of different ages.
The project, “Evidence Based Prevention for Children of Ukraine” is being implemented by the #Prevention_Center_CHOICE and supported by the Institute of International Education, the USA.
