What to Expect at the Training

In Safe and Strong Child© Train the Presenter, participants learn how to present SSC© to students, school staff, and caregivers, use SSC© materials, coordinate a prevention education program, and respond to various classroom situations. As a train-the-presenter course, this course does not prepare participants to train others on how to present the information.

All participants will receive electronic copies of SSC© curriculum materials, classroom presentation aids, and coordination paperwork. Want to jumpstart their SSC© program? A physical Safe and Strong Child© Kit is available in the course registration as an add-on to the training.

Safe and Strong Child© Curriculum

Safe and Strong Child© body safety curriculum aligns with evidence-informed best practices for child sexual abuse prevention. SSC© consists of developmentally appropriate classroom lessons taught interactively through stories, role play, and song in a non-threatening environment. Portions of the curriculum also provide support and education to teachers and caregivers who can help to keep kids safe.
