When headlines of this nature occur at an unfortunate frequency, any organization working with youth must create a culture where sexual abuse is discussed, addressed, and prevented.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has excellent resources on this subject. In their publication, Preventing Child Sexual Abuse Within Youth-serving Organizations, they indentify six key components of a prevention program:

• Screening and selecting employees and volunteers

• Developing guidelines on interactions between individuals

• Monitoring behaviors

• Ensuring safe environments

• Responding to inappropriate behavior, breaches in policy,
and allegations and suspicions of child sexual abuse

• Providing educational programs and training about child sexual abuse prevention

Visit cdc.gov to search the site by topic or publication title. Be sure to utilize the available tools to help your organization initiate and implement this important risk management responsibility.
