preventing child sexual abuse

free online training

YMCAs in New Jersey have a vision of a world free of child sexual abuse. A world in which all children are loved, protected, nurtured and able to grow up healthy.

To educate adults in the community how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse, the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance, including the Metro YMCA, have joined forces with Darkness to Light, a nationally recognized nonprofit organization and creators of the awardwinning Stewards of Children™ child sexual abuse prevention curriculum.
