Difficult topic but a very important afternoon this past Friday at Bridge II Sports.
Our staff took part in “Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children” child sexual abuse prevention training. The instruction was provided by our own Ashley Thomas who is a certified D2L Trainer. The training was a merge between video instruction, workbook exercises, and classroom discussion. We learned the effects of child sexual abuse from adult and young adult survivors, then discussed ways to minimize opportunity, recognize the signs of sexual abuse, and react responsibly.
Our mission at BIIS is to provide the opportunity for an active life for children and adults with disabilities building confidence and empowerment thorugh adapted sports; this cannnot be done without the safety and peace of mind of every athlete, child and family member we serve.
Our committment to preventing sexual abuse upholds one of our most important core principles:
WE CREATE SAFETY FOR THOSE AT RISK TO TRY
