ENCORE Registration Open
FACTOR's next scheduled program is ENCORE! Fayette 50+ which is an 8-week curriculum for anyone 50+ beginning January 22, 2015. ENCORE exposes its participants to the all sectors of the community, meeting leaders and hearing about service opportunities in Fayette County. This is the fastest (and most fun) way to learn about the county and areas of service so they can choose where to best use their skills and talents.
The program tuition is $100 and anyone interested can download the application and mail to FACTOR P.O. Box 142518 Fayetteville, GA 30214.

Stewards of Children Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training
Traditionally programs have been designed to prevent child sexual abuse by teaching children to protect their bodies and to tell an adult if they were ever touched inappropriately. While this is important information for children to know, there is no proof that these programs have long-term eﬀectiveness in reducing the rate of child sexual abuse. Further, we know that 90% of child molesters are known and trusted by their victims. It puts undue pressure on children to take on responsibility for protecting themselves.
A child is not capable of protecting himself or herself. It is the responsibility of adults to protect children from sexual abuse, just as adults are responsible for protecting children when they ride in a vehicle, or when childhood vaccines are required.
If you are a provider of programming and services for children, youth and families, your organization can play a critical role in protecting the lives of children. You can help put an end to child sexual abuse by training your staff and volunteers in the Stewards of Children Training.
Prevention is possible. By participating in the solution, every adult can be a part of a cultural change to end child sexual abuse.
