PreventEd: Sexual Abuse

On January 24, 2013, Governor Pat Quinn signed into law Erin’s Law, which requires all Illinois schools to provide age-appropriate child sexual abuse prevention education for students each year. CFPA’s Prevention Education department assists schools in meeting this state mandate through its classroom-based program, “PreventEd: Sexual Abuse.” This program teaches body safety rules, safe touches versus un-safe touches, types of child abuse, prevention techniques, how to recognize, refuse, and report sexual harassment.

This program is available for preK-12 and is a 30-45 minute classroom presentation.
