Prevention Education

We cannot investigate our way out of the child abuse epidemic but prevention is possible!

The CAC offers a variety of free community education programs to educate and empower adults and children on safety.

 Stewards of Children is the only nationally available program scientifically proven to increase knowledge, improve attitudes and change child-protective behaviors. This revolutionary program is for any responsible adult who cares about the welfare of children. It is also appropriate for youth-serving organizations (sports leagues, day care centers, after school programs, children’s clubs, church groups and more).




PEP Training is designed for educators, community members, and caregivers who have previously completed a Stewards of Children training. This training is a combination of Identifying and Reporting protocol and mandates as well as supplemental training taken from Stewards titled Healthy Touch for Children & Youth and Bystanders Protecting Children from Boundary Violations & Sexual Abuse. Along with this combination, the training will give in depth review of Stewards The 5 Steps to Protecting Our Children.

Building on the education provided in Stewards of Children®, Darkness to Light’s evidence-based training on preventing, recognizing, and reacting responsibly to child sexual abuse, this training teaches you about the root cause of commercial sexual exploitation and why preventing sexual abuse is important to reducing the risk of children being sexually exploited. It is highly recommended that participants complete Stewards of Children® prior to taking the course.


Children’s Personal Safety Program

“MBF Safety Matters” empowers children and teens to spot and respond to child abuse. Most importantly, it teaches that adults are responsible for children’s safety. The Program is based on the latest research and has been reviewed and endorsed by national experts. The CAC and The Sullivan County Regional Health Department have partnered together to offer this program for all schools in our county for Kindergarten-12th grade!
