Anyone who has children or is working with children or youth are invited to "Stewards of Children" training. Stewards of Children is prevention training featuring real people and real stories about protecting children from sexual abuse. It is something we at FOC feel very strongly that we need to receive education on and also help prevent. As a parent and a youth leader, I wanted to offer this training to leaders and parents alike. I have gone through this training and feel empowered and impassioned that we must not sit naively by as this goes on around us. We MUST make a difference. This training will not only help you see the signs of sexual abuse, but you can learn how to prevent it, report it and how to properly talk to someone who has been abused.
Here are some staggering statistics
-Experts estimate that 1 in 10 children are sexually abused before their 18th birthday.
-30% of children are abused by family members.
-As many as 60% are abused by people the family trusts.
-About 35% of victims are 11 years old or younger.
-Nearly 40% are abused by older or larger children.
Please prayerfully consider joining us April 7th at 9am in the FOC sanctuary for this free training. We will have coffee and refreshments.
