It is the responsibility of adults to provide the safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments that help children thrive. We encourage everyone to support families and keep children safe. There are several things you can do to raise awareness and impact positive change during Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Child Advocacy Center of Sedgwick County is asking everyone to wear BLUE every Friday in April to help us raise awareness about child abuse prevention. So wear blue, take a selfie and post it to our Facebook page @CACofSedgwickCounty and/or Instagram @cac_SedgwickCounty with the hashtag #WearBlue2022! and/or #GoBlueICT. Help us reach as many people as possible with child abuse prevention information by following us on social media and sharing our posts!
Con el sueño de un mundo donde los niños puedan crecer felices, sanos y a salvo, Darkness to Light se compromete a facultar a las personas para prevenir el abuso sexual de menores. Creemos que la protección de los niños es responsabilidad de los adultos y que gracias a la educación y la capacitación, estarán facultados para actuar.
How do we ensure that children have a safe, stable, nurturing environment in which to grow? One strategy is engaging communities to support family-friendly policy and practice changes. Family-friendly workplaces and a family-friendly society are good for children, parents, and elders; they are in the best interest of employers; and, in the long run, they benefit all communities. Based on the latest research and strategies for preventing child abuse and neglect, this training will raise awareness and understanding about the connections between preventing and mitigating adverse childhood experiences, which lead to stronger families and stronger businesses. Specific examples of actions that can be taken will be provided. NOTE: This training is not approved for KDHE child care licensing hours, but approval is pending. Certificates of attendance will be provided to all participants.
