Stewards of Children Training

May 9 at 5:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Asheville

he Christian Formation and Fellowship Council for Children and Youth invite parents and those who work with children and youth to attend the Stewards of Children training provided by the Mountain Child Advocacy Center. This training is to help prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

WHY DOES IT APPLY TO ME?
Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent health problem children face, with the most serious array of consequences. In fact, 1 in 10 children will experience sexual abuse before their 18th birthday.

This means that whether you work with youth, are a parent, or are simply a member of a community, it is highly likely that someone you know or care for has experienced, or is currently experiencing, child sexual abuse. It’s going to happen whether you are prepared to deal with it or not – unless you stop it from happening. And the good news, it can be stopped.

WHY IS THIS PROGRAM DIFFERENT?
Stewards of Children® uses real people and real stories to show you how to protect children. The framework of the training is built off the foundation of The 5 Steps to Protecting Children™.

You’ll meet survivors who lived through child sexual abuse, experienced its immediate and long-term effects, and ultimately were able to find healing. You’ll meet experts who work with children and families, and confront abuse on a daily basis. Many of these survivors and experts are also parents themselves.

Continuing Education hours are available.
