Children cannot be expected to protect themselves from child abuse. It is the responsibility of adults to be trained in child abuse awareness and prevention. This comprehensive training will empower you to become proactive and an advocate for children.
You will learn about the four major types of child abuse: physical, sexual, emotional, and neglect; how to recognize the clues that children give us, the behavior typically shown by perpetrators, and how to make a report to the proper authorities when indicated. When adults are educated in the signs of child abuse and neglect, and how to react to them; children are safer and families are strengthened.
Note: In order to ensure the safety of all Girl Scouts this training is required for the leader and assistant leader(s) within the first six months of starting a troop. We do encourage anyone who is working directly with girls (attend meetings, chaperone trips) to attend this training.
