Stewards of Children

The Converse County Sheriff’s Office wants you to be aware that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused by the time they are 18 years old.  The Converse County Sheriff’s Office has sent three deputies to be trained by the Darkness to Light organization to be facilitators for the Stewards of Children program.  This program promotes awareness of child sexual abuse within a community and teaches interested adults how to guard against, recognize and properly react to child sexual abuse.  Thus the Converse County Sheriff’s Office can both offer individuals and organizations this 3 hour training course.  The cost of the course is $10 per individual, as the Converse County Sheriff’s Office must purchase the student interactive work books, required to teach the class, from Darkness to Light at $10 per book.

Our first class is on October 17th, 2012 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
