YHTP offers free child safety training program

NASHVILLE, TN: Victim advocacy agency You Have the Power will present a family safety training presentation entitled “Protecting Our Children” on Tuesday, September 9th, 2014. The event will be held from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM at Judson Baptist Church, 4900 Franklin Road, Nashville. There is no cost to attend.

“Protecting Our Children” is funded under an agreement with the State of Tennessee and is underwritten by a grant from the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA). Attendees will learn how to identify signs of inappropriate behavior, correctly report suspected behavior, and be aware of available resources and prevention.

Panelists will include Nicole Heidemann, YHTP Director of Education/victim of child sexual assault, Sharon Travis, Education Manager of the Sexual Assault Center, and Kelvin Jones of the Rutherford County Police Department. Those who have children in their family or work with children daily should be particularly interested in this seminar for the purposes of identifying signs of abuse that may not be initially obvious.

The public is welcome and encouraged to attend this event. Registration is free but space is limited. The registration page can be found on the You Have the Power website. If you are registered but not sure if you can attend, please call Veronica Clark at (615) 292-7027.

You Have the Power is celebrating its 21st year as a state-wide victim advocacy non-profit organization. Founded by former Tennessee First Lady Andrea Conte, our mission is to educate, advocate, and empower people and communities impacted by violent crime.
