Learn how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

Stewards of Children® is the only nationally available program scientifically proven to increase knowledge, improve attitudes and change child-protective behaviors. Appropriate for any adult, this training will teach you how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
One person can make a difference in a child’s life. But when a community comes together, we can create a new cultural norm that nurtures children and protects them from child abuse.
