The statistics are startling. Approximately 20% of ALL victims of sexual abuse are under the age of 8. One in 5 children are sexually solicited while on the Internet. Thirty to forty percent of children who are sexually abused are abused by family members. As many as 60% are abused by people their family trusts. One in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before their 18th birthday. All these numbers add up to an estimated 39 million survivors of sexual abuse living in the US today. The Greater Holyoke YMCA is taking action to combat child sexual abuse by partnering with Darkness to Light (D2L), a nationally acclaimed non-profit, to bring its award winning prevention program, Stewards of Children to the greater Holyoke community. Stewards of Children is an empowering two-hour workshop that educates adults on how to recognize, prevent and react responsibly to the reality of child sexual abuse. Stewards of Children emphasizes child safety as an adult’s responsibility. D2L trainings are open to the public, but the Y’s community-wide effort is particularly helpful to youth sports organizations, coaches, camp counselors, teachers, schools, faith centers and other service organizations.
