FREE Community Training: Protecting Children from Sexual Abuse

September 17, 2019 - December 10, 2019

The Stewards of Children® training is the only nationally available program that is scientifically proven to increase knowledge, improve attitudes and change child-protective behaviors. Appropriate for any adult, this training will teach you how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent health problem children face, with the most serious array of consequences. In fact, 1 in 10 children will experience sexual abuse before their 18th birthday.

This means that whether you work with youth, are a parent, or are simply a member of a community, it is highly likely that someone you know or care for has experienced, or is currently experiencing, child sexual abuse. It’s going to happen whether you are prepared to deal with it or not – unless you stop it from happening. And the good news, it can be stopped.

Thanks to support from Great Rivers United Way, we will be holding a total of eight FREE Community Education events this Fall and Winter throughout both La Crosse and Trempealeau Counties on Child Sexual Assault Prevention.

This prevention training is from the organization, Darkness to Light; it’s their flagship program–Stewards of Children, featuring real people and real stories about protecting children from sexual abuse.

Attendees will be taught how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. Plus, we will be providing you with a free meal–but we need you to register, so we have a headcount.

Here are the dates for this important training. Each person attending will need to register to secure a spot, and help provide us with the headcount so we can plan for the free meals for everyone in attendance. Click the “REGISTER” link next to the date and location that works best.
