"to help prepare young adults for what to expect when bringing home a baby."
Also Known As: Cope Twenty Four
The organization creates educational videos and curriculum on the topics of child abuse, neglect, and family dysfunction. The primary target audience is youth starting at about the 7th grade and into adulthood. COPE24 connects with school districts so that administrators will include this parenting curriculum in their Family Consumer Science or Life Skills programs. The teachers of child development and family relation type classes are very excited about its program, however, the organization's goal is to reach all youth and not just those who take these classes. COPE 24 is currently producing a documentary video focusing on families rearing a child who has been shaken as a baby or survived some other type of severe head trauma. COPE24 wants to educate our youth to understand that most children survive being shaken, but the quality of the child's life is forever changed. The consequences to the child are severe and permanent.
