Five Days of Action

Step Up and Speak Out!

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The New Jersey YMCA State Alliance is joining with YMCAs from all across the country for Five Days of Action in April to raise awareness and protect kids from sexual abuse. 

Join the YMCAs and youth-serving organizations all across the country as they come together to spread prevention messages on social media, host events to train parents and community volunteers, and educate the community about keeping youth safe from sexual abuse. 


You can download the video, press release, posters, and many other items individually or download them all as a zip file. You can also purchase pre-printed materials. The kit is available in English and Spanish for most materials. 

Be sure to sign-up before you download the kit!
