There are many ways you can take action in your community to help reduce the number of children who go missing. The following are some ideas of how you can take action:
Ask that your local schools become involved in the Kids in the Know kidsintheknow.ca program. Kids in the Know is an interactive safety education program with the goal of increasing the personal safety of children and reducing their risk of sexual exploitation. Personal safety strategies are taught in an age-appropriate and fun way. Click here to download the Kids in the Know brochure to pass along to your child’s school.
Ask your early childhood learning centre to get involved with the Teatree Tells program. Teatree Tells: A Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Kit teatreetells.ca has been designed to teach early childhood educators how to address the sensitive subject of child sexual abuse with families and children.
Ask your local child-serving organizations to begin using the Commit to Kids commit2kids.ca program. Commit to Kids is a program to help organizations create safe environments for children. It provides policies, strategies, and a step-by-step plan for reducing the risk of child sexual abuse, encouraging organizations to take an active, participatory role in protecting children in their care. Child-serving organizations implementing this program are sending a clear message that the safety of children is a priority.
