Child safety seminars set for Saturday

Violent crimes against children are the subject of great community concern. There is a steady increase in child abductions, crimes against children and various forms of child abuse. The National Center for Child Safety and Awareness was established to protect our children from this unfortunate reality.

This Saturday, from 2 to 4 p.m., the center will offer seminars for teens, parents,and other adults to help build confidence and teach skills for handling difficult situations.

The seminars will be held at the Sierra Pines United Methodist Church, 22559 West Hacienda Drive, in Grass Valley. The church is located near Lake of the Pines and directly above Bear River High School.

The center’s purpose is to provide seminars for children, parents, churches, teachers and law enforcement officials on a variety of safety and awareness issues. These seminars teach skills that help prevent abductions, molestation,and other crimes against the children of our communities. NCCSA has worked with thousands of children utilizing role-playing, floor chats and various hands-on exercises.

All seminars are positive, fun and educational, but not frightening. Handouts will be available at the Saturday seminar.
