Developed by Darkness to Light, the training features survivors of child sexual abuse as well as experts in the field explaining the five steps to protect children. Watch the video trailer HERE.
Due to the COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, we have moved our trainings online. Below are dates and times for virtual trainings.

Nurturing Healthy Sexual Development (NHSD)
NHSD creates the foundation for prevention by helping adults understand sexual development at each age (from common to concerning), how to have open conversations with children about sexuality, and how to react when kids engage in sexual behaviors. More information about this curriculum can be found HERE.
Please note: NHSD sessions will be canceled without a minimum of 5 participants registered, so bring a friend!
