Talking about sexual abuse is akin to standing up to the playground bully: awkward and sometimes frightening, but necessary. This is where the Darkness to Lightâs Stewards of Children Sexual Abuse Prevention Training comes in.
Offered through Family Support Center/Kids First Childrenâs Advocacy Center (a program of Rural Resources) Stewards of Children is a comprehensive sexual abuse prevention awareness program, free of charge, that educates adults to prevent, recognize and react responsibility to child sexual abuse.
âI havenât found one person who took the training that wishes they hadnât,â says Prevention and Outreach Unit Manager Linda Norris.
Norris and a few Family Support/Kids First volunteers that choose to address the subject of sexual abuse and what communities can do to stop it in this specialized training.
