Partner in Prevention

A Partner in Prevention is an organization or business that has committed the time and effort to educate themselves on how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. An organization receives the D2L Partner in Prevention distinction when they have successfully met the annual guidelines established by D2L.

The Partner in Prevention Commitment Includes:

  • Making prevention a priority by using Stewards of Children to train staff and volunteers who interact with youth
  • Conducting criminal background checks on staff and volunteers who work with youth
  • Implementing policy that limits opportunities for one adult to be alone with one child  

What Partner in Prevention Distinction Means to Parents

Organizations that train their staff and volunteers create an environment that better protects children. Perpetrators are drawn to places where they can have easy access to children. An organization that emphasizes prevention through training and appropriate policies is an unwelcoming place for a perpetrator. Training increases staff and volunteer awareness and teaches them to recognize the signs that an opportunity exists for abuse to occur, and the signs that abuse has occurred. It is also critical that staff and volunteers know how to react if they recognize the signs or if a child discloses abuse.
