FREE COMMUNITY TRAINING: CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE PREVENTION FOR ADULTS

One in ten children will be the victim of sexual abuse before their 18th birthday. Yet despite this startling statistic, it’s a silent epidemic that too many of us are afraid to talk about. That’s why Valley of the Sun YMCA is starting conversations with community leaders, community members and youth-serving organizations in efforts to prevent abuse—creating awareness and promoting vigilance that will help protect all of the children in our community.

Through generous donations, we are partnering with Darkness 2 Light to offer the Stewards of Children ® training throughout the community in the coming months. This is an evidence-informed training that influences community behavior change. Once certified in Stewards of Children®, adults will take action to protect the children in their lives. See below for upcoming Stewards of Children ® trainings and register today!
