ACA and Redwoods Group Working Together to Bring Safety Training to Camps

Child Sexual Abuse Prevention – A Redwoods Training Course

The training follows a story of sexual abuse from the eyes of a child. Madison, a fictional character based on a real event we handled, tells us her story through journal entries. In this training, we’ll teach staff the basics of how to prevent child sexual abuse. And because effective prevention requires an organization-wide culture of safety, we focus on rule-breaking, and how to stop it from happening.
