WE NEED YOU!!!!
Chaucie’s Place, headquartered in Hamilton County, is seeking volunteers to help present Smart Steps: A Body Safety Program for Children(tm) in Marion, Hamilton, Boone, Madison, Tipton, Hancock and Hendricks Counties . Smart Steps: A Body Safety Program for Children(tm) is a child sexual abuse prevention and education program that teaches elementary school-aged children that their bodies belong to them; they have the right to say "NO!" to unwanted touches from anyone; to tell an adult about any touches that make them uncomfortable; and we assure students that abuse is never, ever their fault. This 30-minute interactive presentation is given in 85 public and private elementary schools, daycares and after-school programs in and around Central Indiana.
