The Prevent it! workshop is brought to you by Little Warriors, a national charitable organization based in Canada committed to the awareness, prevention, and treatment of child sexual abuse. The workshop was developed by researchers at the University of Alberta to teach adults about child sexual abuse. This workshop is unique in Canada and was developed using a rigorous scientific review of literature.
The Prevent It! workshop educates adults to TAKE ACTION through gaining knowledge to help prevent and respond to child sexual abuse.
- 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys will experience sexual abuse
- 95% of those children know their perpetrator
- 95% of cases go unreported
Little Warriors offers the Prevent It! workshop in communities where we have active facilitators. If we do not have an active facilitator in your community, we can work with you to arrange a facilitator to come to your community.

What do I need to do to prepare for the workshop at my location?
Approximately, 3-5 days prior to the session, the Regional Program Coordinator will contact you to ask for a list of names of the registered participants. This will allow us to prepare certificates for each person that is attending. On the day of the session, please ensure that your room is set up with chairs for enough participants and a TV and DVD player or laptop, projector, screen and speakers. Be prepared to meet the facilitator at the location ½ hour before the session is to start so they have time to get set up.
