Become a Stewards of Children Facilitator

Provide the Stewards of Children sexual abuse prevention program to your community---great for staff, volunteers, and parents!

Facilitator Overview

A facilitator is a representative whom organizations send to be trained on how to implement the Stewards of Children program. This facilitator may provide the training within a specific organization and/or in the broader community.

Facilitator training is offered to:
  • A representative of an organization either as an employee or a volunteer for that organization.
  • An independent individual who desires to be trained, however, has no sponsor organization.
  • Anyone interested in receiving continuing education credits (CEU’s).
    • Please note that someone interested solely in receiving CEUs is more than welcome to complete training; however, they will not become an authorized facilitator. As a result, they will receive training materials necessary for the training itself, but will not receive a briefcase start-up kit to begin implementation of the Stewards of Children curriculum.
While it is not necessary to have adult education/training experience or expertise in Child Sexual Abuse, it is recommended that a Facilitator have some experience in at least one of these areas.
