Event Details

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month!

Join The Alexandria Child Abuse Prevention Coalition of Alexandria in raising awareness of how to prevent and respond to child abuse and neglect. During the month of April we are partnering together to provide free training for parents, child-serving professionals, and community members who live or work in the City of Alexandria.

Become a Steward of Children. Learn how you can protect children in your life from child sexual abuse. Research shows that 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before they turn 18. The reality is sobering, but there is hope because child sexual abuse can be prevented. Authorized facilitators with direct experience working with child abuse victims right here in the City of Alexandria will lead interactive sessions of Darkness to Light's Stewards of Children training. Participants will learn what adults and organizations should do to protect children from sexual abuse in our community.

 Respond Responsibly to Child Abuse and Neglect. Do you know what to do if you suspect a child has been abused? How to recognize the signs of abuse and neglect?
