The commitment identifies practical steps we can all take to help stop child abuse. Whether you’re a national youth-serving organization, local club, staff, parent or other individual in the community, we can all move forward together by leading, supporting and implementing child abuse prevention programs.

The commitment is not intended to replace assessment tools, but to help us begin moving forward around child abuse prevention and commit to working toward a full and comprehensive approach to stopping abuse.
