YMCAs throughout New Jersey, including the Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges, have joined forces with Darkness to Light to help educate adults in NJ on how to prevent child sexual abuse. Starting this week, New Jersey is launching an online training campaign, which allows anyone in the state of NJ to participate in a Stewards of Children training online for free.

“As Social Responsibility is one of the Y’s key areas of focus, we are committed to developing community-based solutions that unite people to participate in and work for positive social change,” said Richard K. Gorab, President and CEO. “By partnering with Darkness to Light, we will educate and empower adults to become agents of change to protect children from sexual abuse.”
