Objectives...
The service SpeakingOut offers to the public is providing much-needed information, education & training on the topic of Child Sexual Abuse.  

Raising Awareness in an effort to aid in the Prevention of this Crime by...
About Us
  • holding Awareness/Prevention Workshops open to the public and/or for specific groups upon request

  • taking advantage of any/all public & closed meeting Speaking opportunities that become available to Raise Awareness by SpeakingOut for children

  • providing Educational Materials to the public (Website, Monthly eNewsletter, Social Networking Sites, etc...)

  • taking a Public Stand against Child Sexual Abuse

  • sending a message to Sexual Predators of children that we, as a society, will no longer just sit idly by while they harm unsuspecting, helpless, innocent
    children.  We reveal not only what they do to children, but how they silence children from telling on them.
SpeakingOut's Primary Focus is on the Home.  Through our Awareness/ Prevention Workshops, we are
working to educate Parents (and Grandparents) by giving them detailed information on the following...
1) The Truth & Reality of Child Sexual Abuse

2) What Child Sexual Abuse Is/Is Not

3) Signs/Symptoms of the Sexually Abused Child

4) The Statistics

5) Information on the Abuser

6) Information on "The System"

7) Message to Parents
    Includes steps they can take to protect their child from Sexual Abuse...

8) Message to Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse
    - Includes a Message of Hope
    - Includes information on possible long-term Effects of Childhood Sexual Abuse for Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse
By educating Parents on Child Sexual Abuse and encouraging them to talk to their own children, this in turn will raise awareness in
children.  As this happens, we believe that this will help in reducing the number of unsuspecting children who are easy prey for Sexual
Predators.  And by getting Parents to
open up the communication line between them and their children about sexual abuse and
misconduct (what‘s appropriate & inappropriate), we believe that many children who are now being violated will feel safe to come
forward and "tell" on their abuser.  In addition, this will help children understand this it is okay to say "No", even to an Authority Figure in
this case.  They have that right!
By encouraging Parents to tell others, our goal is to get people to start talking openly about Child Sexual Abuse without the
shame that is generally associated with this topic.  As people start talking openly, we as a society will begin to
uncover this
horrific crime
committed against innocent children of all ages.
It is our belief that Parents are the key.  We try reach as many homes as possible (within our means) by holding educational workshops, and by providing
information to Parents and Grandparents by various means.
Additional Focal Points are...

1)  Churches

2)  Daycares/Caregivers

3)  Schools

4)  Healthcare Professionals

4)  Anyone who works with or around children

Everyone who attends one of our
Awareness/Prevention Workshops receives a
Certificate of Completion at the end of the
workshop.

SpeakingOut will join forces with all who are
willing to fight against Child Sexual Abuse.
