New York legislator and staff take Stewards of Children

Recently, Child Advocacy Program (CAP) Executive Director and D2L Authorized Facilitator Jana McDermott provided Stewards of Children training to Congressman Tom Reed of the 23rd District, along with multiple staff from the district office, county executive’s office, and state assemblyman’s office.

According to one attendee, “Training was very beneficial and would be great for ANY organization that deals with youth. I wish we had taken this training a few years ago when I worked for a local town summer recreation program.”

Response from the training was so overwhelmingly positive that Jana asked Congressman Reed what his next step would be. He said, “Write a bill.”

CAP wants to train 5,000 adults in the Jameston community and youth serving organizations to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. Legislation backed by education and understanding of the issue could go a long way toward achieving this goal.

  1. Stewards of Children training is an outstanding vehicle to inform and educate the public about such a troubling subject. I learned first-hand warning signs of abuse, and strategies for prevention of abuse. I encourage everyone to invest a few hours of their time and attend The Stewards of Children training.
