April 19, 2013
9 am - 12 pm
Child sexual abuse is epidemic. 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused by the age of 18. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recognizes
child sexual abuse as a public health crisis.
There is a solution.
Stewards of Children is the only nationally distributed, evidence-based program proven to increase knowledge, improve attitudes, and change child protective behaviors.
Stewards of Children takes a comprehensive approach to educating adults and youth-serving organizations to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. It is designed for parents and for any organization that serves youth, including schools and educational institutions, faith centers, sports leagues, and law enforcement.
The 3-hour training includes facilitator-led discussion, interactive workbook activity, and compelling video. Stewards of Children also helps organizations ensure the safest space possible for kids by providing the tools and information needed for any group to strengthen child protection policies and procedures.
** April is Child Abuse Prevention month and in honor of that the CAC has generously offered to waive the $10 cost for mateials for the first 50 registrants. To be eligible you must register by April 17th otherwise the cost of materials per participant is $10 at the door.
Stewards of Children is a program that works.
Multiple studies have shown that Stewards of Children is effective in increasing knowledge, improving attitudes and positively changing adults’ child-protective behaviors over the long-term.
Stewards of Children goes beyond awareness—it provides skills. Participants
learn specific concrete actions that they can take, as individuals and as a part of bigger organizations, that work to protect children.
You can help stop child sexual abuse.
