Description: Child sexual abuse (CSA) is a significant societal problem with devastating consequences. Research suggests that adults do an inadequate job of preventing abuse because of low awareness, limited knowledge of steps to protect children and reluctance to take action in response to suspicions of abuse. CSA is an issue for youth-serving organizations because they are often magnets for offenders seeking victims, their staff does not have adequate knowledge of CSA, and their policies and procedures are often inadequate. Darkness to Light has developed and compiled a vast array of CSA prevention resources and educational materials. However, these are of limited value if individuals and organizations are unaware of them. The goal of this project is to provide assistance to leaders of youth serving organizations and to acquaint them with resources and educational materials that target the issue of CSA. This project will engage 60 leaders of youth-serving organizations in one-on-one consultation to review and improve their child protection policies and procedures.
