The Valley of the Sun YMCA invites you to join us for a “Day of Action” to bring awareness and discuss how we can work together to eradicate child sexual abuse. One in ten children will be the victim of sexual abuse before their 18th birthday. Despite this startling statistic, it’s a silent epidemic that people are afraid to talk about. The Valley of the Sun YMCA is starting conversations with community leaders, community members and youth serving organizations in efforts to prevent abuse.
On October 8th, we will be hosting the Stewards of Children training for adults, developed by Darkness to Light. This will teach individuals how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
Through generous donations, this training is able to be provided to 250 adults for free.
The training will be followed by a press conference to announce our continued commitment to this cause, align organizations with similar missions and spread awareness to the community.
