About The Event
Statistics suggest that in children will be sexually abused by the age of 18. Ninety percent of children who are sexually abused are violated by someone they know and trust. This includes youth leaders of all types: teachers, coaches, ministers, mentors, counselors, parents and other youth.
This program takes a direct and comprehensive approach to the problem of sexual abuse within youth-serving organizations. A compelling video, the core of the curriculum, includes the stories of several courageous individuals who were victims of sexual abuse as children and who have contributed a great deal of time and effort as adults toward ending the cycle of abuse.
Pre-Registration is required and may be completed online or by calling MPCC Business and Community Education at 308-535-3678.
Registration cost is $15 per person. This reduced registration fee is made possible through sponsorship by Bridge of Hope Child Advocacy Center and the Lincoln County Child Abuse Prevention Council.
