Stewards of Children Prevention Training available in Durham

On March 16th, adults can make a difference in the lives of children by taking Stewards of Children Training through Durham's Child S.A.F.E. from 2:00-5:00 at the Durham Center at 414 E. Main Street.  Stewards of Children is an evidence-based prevention training program that teaches adults how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.   I have taken this training myself and found it completely enlightening in my role as a parent, as a community advocate, and someone who works in an organization that also serves children and youth.  I highly recommend it to every adult and parents with children at any age.  I really knew very little about this topic and recent news events remind us that most of us simply don't know enough.
The statistics are shocking with 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys experiencing some form of sexual abuse by the age of 18.  Stewards of Children is for anyone who wants to make a difference in their community by educating themselves about the protection of children.  
You will see the contact information for registration and details at the link below.  This is also a training that can be offered to adults in the community, at your school or church on request.  Nancy Kent’s contact information is on the flyer if you are interested in bringing the training to a group you are involved with.
Here is the flyer to learn more....
