Child sexual abuse is a difficult topic. If you find yourself triggered by any of the website’s content, please stop and take the time you need to talk with someone to get support. If you need help now, please contact one of these resources today.

The CDC Foundation and Applied Curiosity Research are speaking with youth-serving organizations (YSOs) around the country to learn how YSOs approach child safety and child sexual abuse prevention. This feedback will lead directly to free resources from the CDC to help YSOs create safe, stable, nurturing environments for children in their care and prevent child sexual abuse. Join a 90-minute, virtual focus group to share what your organization is doing to keep children safe.
