Community Education Training The Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County offers community education and training for parents and caregivers, educators, child care professionals, faith communities and corporate and civic groups. Through this initiative, the Center is raising the awareness throughout the community about the importance of preventing, recognizing and reporting child abuse. 

It is estimated that for every adult trained in recognizing and reporting child abuse, 10 children are made safer, so we offer evidenced-based training opportunities for adults to equip them with essential information to protect children. We also offer trainings for children and students to help them learn about personal boundaries and responsible technology use to help them keep themselves safe.

While no amount of training can fully ensure that children will be protected, education can help reduce opportunities for abuse to occur in child-serving settings. We also encourage open dialogue about abuse between parents and their children. Ultimately, our goal is to stem the flow of cases coming into our Center by helping our community minimize the risk of abuse or neglect in the first place.

To date, our Community Education program has reached more than 15,000 adults and 75,000 children in our community with information on how to stay safe from abuse. You can ensure that the children in your life are protected through education from the CACCC.
