YMCA Child Abuse Awareness Program
Posted 09/11/2018 09:00AM

Silver Oak students in kindergarten and grades 2, 4 and 5, participate in discussions led by the YWCA of Silicon Valley about topics of bullying and sexual abuse in an age-appropriate manner. The premise of the program is all children have the right to be safe and healthy at school and at home. The goal of this program is to teach young people in an engaging and age-appropriate way to recognize, resist, and report abuse. During the Child Abuse Prevention Program presentations, children are taught to use The Plan if they ever feel unsafe or unsure about something that is occurring in their life. The Plan has three steps: Say "No! Stop!", Walk Away, and Tell Someone (like a trusted adult). The Child Abuse Prevention Program presentations run 35 – 55 minutes, depending on grade level. For more information, please see the YWCA-SV website
