Today 1 in 3 females and 1 in 4 males experience sexual abuse in their lifetimes. And it starts early. According to the US Centers for Disease Control, more than 50% of this abuse for both males and females occurs before the age of 17. And these statistics are based only on reported incidents. According to United Educators, as many as 90% of incidents are never reported. Schools are responsible for maintaining an environment that prioritizes student safety. Prevention and response are essential ingredients to fulfilling this responsibility. While there are many resources available, there has been no centralized source for information, practices and tools to support school leaders. Until now.
Learning Courage gives school leaders the tools they need to reduce the number of incidents and respond appropriately when they do occur. Connecting schools with ground-breaking programs, best practices and both human and academic resources will prevent incidents and minimize trauma from each occurrence.
