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 Lightâ€™s Stewards of Children Sexual Abuse Prevention Training comes in.
Offered through Family Support Center/Kids First Childrenâ€™s 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.
â€śI havenâ€™t found one person who took the training that wishes they hadnâ€™t,â€ť 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.
