Protecting the children in your ministry or community-based program is essential. Leaders, staff and volunteers should be equipped to recognize and respond to signs and allegations of abuse. They should also have clear, behavioral-based expectations of what is and what is not appropriate when interacting with children in your program. Browse the resources below to get started!

Child abuse is such an important topic to address, but approaching it can be tricky, especially with kids. How do we protect their innocence? How do we prepare them without scaring them? These are valid questions, and a child’s developmental stage is key in determining how to approach this sensitive topic. The best resources for kids equip them with confidence, teach them to trust their instincts, and help them recognize and respond when something is inappropriate.
