YMCA offering free online Stewards of Children training
Posted on 10.17.2014, Friday

Join the movement to better protect children in Durham, Orange and Chatham counties with free training through the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA’s Darkness to Light initiative. The YMCA has partnered with the national non-profit Darkness to Light to train adults to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse, in an effort to spread awareness and create a community where this abuse is not tolerated or simply ignored.

That is why the Y has trained more than 7,300 adults in Stewards of Children. This 2-hour, evidence-based training focuses on each adult’s responsibility in preventing child sexual abuse and the role that our community can play in creating awareness and knowledge surrounding child protective behaviors. Until now, this powerful training has only been offered in person, but a recent grant has provided a new opportunity to reach even more community members by offering Stewards of Children online for free!

Click here to make a commitment to protecting children by taking the Stewards of Children free online training, and please spread the word about this opportunity. Help keep more children safe by providing these valuable tools to as many adults as possible!
