According to multiple studies, one out of four girls and one out of six boys will be sexually abused before they reach the age of eighteen.1 Protecting the children your organization supports from a sexual perpetrator is paramount in importance. Given the trust-based nature of this crime, it can be very difficult to detect dangerous behavior(s) until it is too late. Almost 90% of child sexual abuse cases involve a perpetrator that the child knows and trusts, such as a care provider, family friend, coach, student leader, or ministry volunteer.2 Taking additional, cost-effective prevention measures that increase your organization's barriers to this crime remains in the best interests of the children you support.
