Child Abuse Prevention Curriculla Project

Wednesday March 7

New York State Children's Alliance, Inc., PO Box 1113, Penfield

Addressing child abuse is a community responsibility that requires education to equip both children and adults with the necessary information and strategies designed to recognize signs of child abuse and respond appropriately, and to prevent child abuse from occurring in the first place. The goal of this project is to increase access to child abuse prevention educational materials for community and school educators designed to train professionals who can educate and empower students to tell a trusted adult if they are being abused. Several child abuse prevention curricula are available in the field, and three will be offered as part of this project in order to begin to build capacity in New York State. These curricula are: Child Safety Matters; High Five; Safe Touches Individuals or teams of up to three will be eligible to apply to attend one or more of the trainings. Decisions regarding acceptance into the project will be based on candidates' agreement to attend and actively participate in the training, implement the curriculum, provide quarterly data related to implementation, and letters of support from one or more schools that have agreed to implement the curriculum. Letters should describe the commitment to support implementation of the curriculum within the school, and how and when the curriculum will be implemented. Please forward letters of support to Clare Robinson-Henrie at: [email protected] . Applications are due by February 1st, 2018.
