April 07, 2022 - April 21, 2022

Thanks to support from Al Louis’ Musky Challenge through the Rotary Club of Downtown La Crosse, New Horizons Shelter and Outreach Centers will be hosting a free training, Stewards of Children, to the community.

*THIS TRAINING IS FULL – Please sign up for our wait list.* April 21st 11:30 am – 2:00 pm at Lunda Center

The Stewards of Children® training from Darkness to Light 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.

Attendees will be taught how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. People of all professions, education, and backgrounds are encouraged to attend this training.

Lunch is provided free of charge.
