MEXICO CITY, NY – CiTi Career and Technical Education Early Childhood Education students recently learned about child abuse, child sex trafficking, what it means to be a mandatory abuse reporter and how to recognize the signs and factors of risk associated with various forms of child abuse during a guest presentation.
The students spoke with an awareness, prevention and education advocate from the Child Advocacy Center (CAC) of Oswego County during their class time.
Students heard difficult statistics. For example, one in 10 children will be abused before the age of 18. Although the data is a hard truth, the presentation was intended to help prepare students to better serve children in their future careers by being aware of the signs.
