Preventing Child Sexual Abuse in Youth Serving Organizations through Risk Reduction Practices

Programs providing services, support and activities to children can also provide easy access for child sex offenders to groom potential victims. Summer camps, athletics, the faith community, schools and more all have a duty to ensure children and youth they serve are safe while under their care.  This training will cover six critical components administrators, staff and volunteers should know for ensuring safe environments. Topics will include recognizing and reporting child abuse, strategies for screening and selecting employees/volunteers and steps for ensuring safe interactions between children and adults. All participants will walk away with an organizational planning tool. A brief organizational self-assessment will be provided for participants to complete pre-training

Special thanks to the Kentucky Associations of Child Advocacy Centers for supporting this effort.

Child sexual abuse prevention is always of paramount importance to entities and organizations serving children. The topic of child safety is often multi-faceted. The following is a self-assessment questionnaire to help organizations and other entities determine how comprehensively they have addressed risk reduction strategies in physical premises, policies, and procedures.

As you complete this questionnaire, you will receive immediate feedback on each topic. At the conclusion, you will have the opportunity to view your results and print a report with additional information, resources, and guidance. We encourage you to use this self-assessment to address any opportunities for strengthening your plans for the safety of the children you serve. If you have any questions, please contact Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky by phone at 859-225-8879 or by email at
