Free Zoom Workshop: Safe Communities “Are You Asking the Right Questions?”

Summertime is approaching and many caregivers are registering their children for summer camps and special summer programs. This will likely introduce your child to new friends, new adults, and new places. About 80-90 percent of sexual abuse is committed by someone the child and parent know and trust. It’s important to ensure the camp, program, church, or organization has the proper policies and practices in place to keep your child safe. The good news is that there are ways we can do this. Join Safe Communities for a free virtual workshop to learn the specific questions every parent or caregiver must ask regarding policies, procedures, and training before enrolling their child in a summer program and what the answers should be. Learn why background checks and training on mandated reporting, while important, do little to prevent abuse. As the caretaker of a child, you have the right to know what procedures are used by any place that you entrust your kids to, and it’s about making sure you are asking all the right questions.The workshop will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, May 30th from 6:30PM-7:45PM. A recording link will be sent to those registered after the workshop for those who cannot attend live. Facilitator: Mark Harris, Assistant Director **This Free workshop was generously sponsored by the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office** Registration Required.

Keeping Your Kids Safe: Child Sexual Abuse Prevention 101 Free Zoom Workshop

One of Safe Communities’ most popular and well-received workshops is our Child Sexual Abuse Prevention 101. In June and July, we will present a two-part free workshop into two, one-hour presentations with time for questions. Join this 2-part workshop series to explore topics such as grooming, hugs, secrets, teaching your kids how to keep themselves safe, how to talk to your kids about private parts, play dates, sleepovers, and signs & symptoms of child sexual abuse. So many parents are looking for answers. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the news, social media, and family/work life balance. It’s hard to know how to have important but difficult conversations with your kids. These conversations could change your child’s life. After these workshops you will have confidence, tools, and the ability to thrive in those important conversations with your kids. These workshops will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, June 30th (Part One) from 6:30PM-7:45PM and on Tuesday, July 25th (Part Two) at 6:30PM-7:45PM. Only one registration is needed to be confirmed for both workshops. A limited time recording link will be sent to those registered after the workshop for those who cannot attend live. Facilitator: Mark Harris, Assistant Director **This Free workshop was generously sponsored by the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office**
