April is Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Prevention Month, and Buffalo's ASAP, or Ambassadors for Sexual Assault Prevention, have been offering training and workshops on the subject during the month.
Saturday they will present “Safeguarding God's Children,” a training program geared to preventing and then responding to child sexual abuse. The program is designed for church leaders, clergy, parents, educators, daycare providers or anyone who works with children, although because of content, they recommend those age 16 and older to attend.
The program will be at St. Luke's Episcopal Church at 178 S. Main Street and will run from 9:30am to 12:30pm.
There is no charge for the program, and there are still a few spots available, according to Rev. Doug Wasinger. Sign up by calling him at 684-7529 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coffee and refreshments will be provided.
