PREVENTION IS THE KEY!!
Prevention IS possible. Child sexual abuse is preventable. It will only be prevented if we, the adults of the community, take responsible action to protect our children and advocate for them.
Through community collaboration, awareness is raised at a higher and more effective level, leading to more adults trained to protect children. It's up to us to protect them. Not one individual. Not one organization. Not one provider. Statistically TEN children are better protected for every ONE adult trained. Be one. Be a steward of children.
Sign up for free online Stewards of Children child sexual abuse prevention training by Darkness to Light through the Flip the Switch campaign.
CHECK YOUR AREA FOR OFFENDERS
Look up offenders in your area through the North Carolina Department of Public Safety website. Click the link below to see the "Acceptable Use Policy." If you agree to that, you'll go to a page to choose your search method.
NC Department. of Public Safety website
There are also useful resources and references through the NC Department of Justice website.
Remember that just because someone passes a background check, that doesn't mean they can or should have freedom around children. Many (experts believe most) cases of child sexual abuse are never reported. Therefore, many offenders are never prosecuted or on any type of registry. Always actively follow safe practices and policies to protect children.
Contact hours for continued education and in-service hours are available. Ask about details and requirements.
We can accomplish a cultural change to help eradicate this crime. Be one who helps stop a child from being abused. By preventing abuse, you could also help prevent child exploitation, substance abuse, homelessness, human trafficking, trauma disorders, suicide, teen pregnancy, mental and behavioral health issues, and other health-related issues often associated with child sexual abuse.
What is Child Sexual Abuse?
WHO'S AT RISK? Everyone
Child Sexual Abuse does not discriminate. This crime happens among all socioeconomic and education levels, races, religions and backgrounds.
Contact us for training information, scheduling, or additional resources. We offer training for prevention and awareness of child sexual abuse and exploitation.
Preventing child sexual abuse (CSA) helps prevent the modern-day slavery of domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST). It is estimated that greater than 90% of children who become victims of exploitation or trafficking were first victims of CSA.
We offer presentations and training by Shared Hope International, an organization focused on putting an end to human trafficking. Trainings are facilitated by an Ambassador of Hope and are appropriate for adults and youth. Visit our Prevent Minor Sex Trafficking page or contact us to learn more. Visit SharedHope.org.
