Why Become Educated?

Teaching children about their bodies and inappropriate touches can help them say no to unwanted contact and to tell an adult. However, adults ultimately bear the responsibility of protecting children. You can help prevent child sexual abuse by understanding the facts and minimizing the risk. The Stewards of Children training program will prepare you for this important role.

Stewards of Children

Stewards of Children is a nationally recognized child sexual abuse prevention training program for adults. The training covers facts about child sexual abuse, situations in which child sexual abuse might occur, strategies for protecting children, and signs of sexual abuse and how to respond. This program is for any adult, particularly parents and others working with youth.
