About the Five Days of Action
The Five Days of Action is a week-long campaign designed to raise awareness and inspire adults to take action to protect children from sexual abuse. This year’s themecampaign reinforces the three simple habits of KNOW. SEE. RESPOND. and will take place April 18-22.
The Five Days of Action is an effort of the YMCA Champions for Child Protection, with support from YMCA of the USA (Y-USA), Darkness to Light, the Redwoods Group Foundation, the American Camp Association and the Monique Burr Foundation for Children, encouraging all organizations to join together to protect children.
The Five Days of Action are all about preparing you to give children the safe, happy experience they deserve. Protecting kids from abuse might sound difficult or uncomfortable at first, but just like fire safety or water safety, all it takes is a little preparation!
It’s easy to treat child sexual abuse as one more thing to stress out about, which is why we’re breaking it down. Protecting kids doesn’t have to be overwhelming — in fact, there are protective measures we can take that can come as easy as taking a deep breath.
Register today to ensure you don't miss any of the planning fun, including the release of the kit and other support materials you may find helpful. By participating in the Five Days of Action, you can be a source of hope during this time and help to protect the kids in your community from sexual abuse.
