Learn how to Detect and Prevent Child Assault



Teens and adults are invited to learn how to detect and prevent child sexual assault at free training sessions on Wednesday, March 18th, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. or from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.  The workshops will be offered by the Enough Abuse Campaign, a cooperative effort of Prevent Child Abuse New Jersey, Project Self-Sufficiency and the Sussex Warren Partnership to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse.  The community-wide education initiative aims to mobilize adults and communities to prevent child sexual assault by increasing awareness of the warning signs displayed by predators and as well as victims.  Educators are particularly interested in training middle and high school youth, their parents, teachers, administrators, coaches and other youth-serving professionals on how to recognize and prevent child sexual abuse.  Project Self-Sufficiency is located at 127 Mill Street in Newton.  Participation is free and open to anyone interested in stemming the tide of child sexual assault, but advance registration is required.  To register, or to find out more about the Enough Abuse campaign, call Project Self-Sufficiency, 973-940-3500.
