The program, which teaches adults how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse, is designed for individuals concerned about the safety of children as well as organizations that serve youth. The 2019 training is supported by funds donated from the Brooklyn Cares Program at the Brooklyn Correctional Institution.
NOW Executive Director Sarah Wolfburg said: “Our goal is to ensure that children have a healthy foundation, and part of building that foundation is to guarantee that children are safe when engaging with adults. It is important to NOW that all adults working with children have the tools and training to ensure safe interactions and that best practices are being observed.”
