Learn to Protect Children from Sexual Abuse
Protecting your children is a top priority at Venture, both in the Kidzone children’s ministry and in our community. Whether you’re a parent or volunteer with children, it’s important to know how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children training is a nationwide Child Sexual Abuse Prevention training featuring real people and real stories about protecting children from sexual abuse. Venture will offer 2 training sessions. Please register by clicking the links below.
Why Does it Apply to Me?
- 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.
Why is This Program Different?
- Stewards of Children® uses real people and real stories to show you how to protect children. The framework of the training is built off the foundation of The 5 Steps to Protecting Children™.
- You’ll meet survivors who lived through child sexual abuse, experienced its immediate and long-term effects, and ultimately were able to find healing. You’ll meet experts who work with children and families, and confront abuse on a daily basis. Many of these survivors and experts are also parents themselves.
