Stewards of Children: Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training

Bright Horizons will host
Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children
Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training
Tuesday, October 18th from 6PM to 8:30PM
at the Northeast Community College Lifelong Learning Center

 

Statistics suggest that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused by the age of 18. Ninety percent of children who are sexually abused are violated by someone they know and trust. This includes youth leaders of all types: teachers, coaches, ministers, mentors, counselors, parents and other youth.

The Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children sexual abuse prevention program takes a direct and comprehensive approach to the problem of sexual abuse within youth-serving organizations. A compelling video, the core of the curriculum, includes the stories of several courageous individuals who were victims of sexual abuse as children and who have contributed a great deal of time and effort as adults toward ending the cycle of abuse.

This program is ideal for the training of staff and volunteers in youth-serving organizations; it is also appropriate for the parents of children served by these organizations. Audrea is an authorized facilitator and has been fully equipped to implement this program. She will lead a 2.5 hour training session, including a discussion of the information presented in the video. Each participant also receives two pieces of curriculum, a workbook and Darkness to Light’s 7 Steps to Protecting our Children.

Audrea is also able to guide organizations through the development of sexual abuse prevention policies and procedures. Both the training and the policies and procedures are important steps toward creating environments that are safe for children.

Sexual abuse has enormous costs: Children are hurt, the reputations of organizations are destroyed, and insurance settlements are astronomical. You or your organization can’t afford to ignore it; protect their only childhood.
