Stoughton Schools Administration, Faculty Participate in Childhood Sexual Abuse Prevention Training

Categories: Other, Success Stories, YMCA

Stoughton Public Schools (MA) administrators, nurses and coaches recently partnered with the YMCA-sponsored Darkness to Light Childhood Sexual Abuse Prevention Program.

Darkness to Light, a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching adults simple, pro-active steps to help protect children from sexual abuse, is not widely known in the Northeast.  The Old Colony Y and Certified Instructor Susan Komisar Hausman are ensuring that will change.  

As Hausman says, “We are aiming high, looking to train 5% of the adult population in those 31 communities [part of the Old Colony YMCA] in child sexual abuse prevention. That means about 10,000 adults.”
