NC Johnson Interns Shed Light on Abuse

Categories: Other, YMCA

“Darkness to Light seemed like a good organization for us to get involved with,” says Leandra Lambert, a Johnson intern. 

The Johnson Intern Program is a Chapel-Hill, NC based initiative that selects 8 young adults to serve for 10 months in local non-profit organizations.  This year the interns have decided to promote the Stewards of Children program. 

All eight of the interns have taken the training, and now are advocating for others in the community to get involved. 

“Even if your workplace has a sexual-abuse prevention program, it should also offer this one,” says Meg Boyle. “It gives you great tools to use everywhere in your life, whether you are a manager, a parent, a teacher, a volunteer, or a babysitter.”

One of the interns, Drew Bonner, is doing his placement a the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA.  His efforts are helping the Y reach a goal of training 1,500 adults in Stewards a year.
