You are invited (along with your spouse or supportive family member) to a special “prevention and response” training program for adults that minimizes risk and opportunity for childhood sexual abuse. The focus is not on the ugliness, but on what we can do to avoid and minimize the opportunities. This training is about education, empowering and giving resources.
The organization is called Darkness to Light. The training program itself is called “Stewards of Children”. You can go to www.d2l.org for more information on this organization and training. Sandie Brock will be facilitating.
The training will be Thursday, June 2, 6:00-9:00pm at the Speckled Bird Café with light refreshments beginning at 5:30.
A suggested donation is $25, which includes booklet worth $10. Also, if finances are a problem, let us know because there may be people wanting to sponsor participants. We want the message to get out!
Here is an explanation from facilitator, Sandie Brock:
”I am passionate about this for many reasons and have chosen this Stewards of Children training as a way to invest in this issue BECAUSE IT WORKS! It is exciting to know that through this education children will be protected and abuse nearly eradicated from our communities. Research shows that each one of us impacts another ten! I care about my friends, my community, my faith community and want to be sure that YOU have the opportunity to be educated in this area for the best chance to steward our children.”
