Preventing Abuse





The USOC’s SafeSport program offers a handbook that contains general policy guidelines, policy templates and simple forms and documents that address emotional, physical and sexual harm. Utilize this information to assist youth-serving organizations in creating programs and procedures to help stop abuse before it occurs.

Additionally, the Center for Disease Control offers a manual dedicated to helping individuals get started on creating policies and procedures on preventing child sexual abuse in youth-serving organizations.
