Child Safety Training for Abuse and Prevention

Complete your due diligence and help protect the children and families in your community that trust your organization. Implement and mandate a comprehensive child safety training program for all employees and volunteers. By educating employees and volunteers properly on how to identify common signs of abuse, you’re better prepared to prevent it from happening in your own organization.

The Child Safety Training Course is completed online at any chosen day or time. It consists of 5 lessons covering the following topics:

  • Lesson 1: Defining Child Sexual Abuse
  • Lesson 2: Victim Behavioral Characteristics
  • Lesson 3: Characteristics of Child Molesters
  • Lesson 4: Making a Difference
  • Lesson 5: Responsibility & Reporting

At the end of the training, a quiz will be presented to measure your volunteers' understanding of the material. A minimum score of 70 percent is required. You will also have the opportunity to download pdfs of each lesson and links to resources for more information on the topic.

Consequences of Abuse

Victims of child abuse often struggle with the emotional and spiritual effects for the rest of their lives. Sadly, child abuse victims are themselves at higher risk of inflicting the abuse on other children.

Allegations of abuse can also tarnish, sometimes irretrievably, a reputation. Instead of being able to fulfill your organization’s mission, leadership must spend their time explaining to the media, to the courts, and to visitors why they weren't able to prevent the abuse. The financial impact can be devastating as well with verdicts of up to $100 million for child abuse committed by those whom they were charged with supervising.

The Statistics are Staggering

It's difficult to look at real numbers surrounding child abuse, but important to begin understanding the gravity of the problem. Statistics show that 1 in 7 girls and 1 in 25 boys will be sexually assaulted by the time they reach age 18, but most victims are under age 14. And over 1,700 children die from their abuse. Roughly 90% of child abuse cases involve someone they know and trust.

One out of every 417 persons in the U.S. is on the sex offender registry making it vital to complete background checks. However, with over 678,000 victims of child abuse and neglect and over 47,000 unique cases each year, you can see many perpetrators go undetected until caught.
