Grants of up to $10,000 to New York child welfare agencies and advocacy centers in eligible regions to protect child athletes from abuse. Funding is intended to support the development of training programs that educate staff, coaches, and owners of clubs on how to prevent sexual abuse for child gymnasts. Agencies must be situated in one of five geographic areas of Western NY and West Finger Lakes; East Finger Lakes, Central NY and Southern Tier; Capitol District; Mid-Hudson; and Long Island, and be able and willing to travel to local gymnastics clubs within a 2-hour commute.
Based on these findings, AAF and The NYSPCC developed a pilot project for New York State that would inform a nation-wide child sexual abuse prevention model, the Children First Initiative. This initiative will enlist Child Advocacy Centers and child welfare agencies who are uniquely positioned as experts on child abuse and protection to support gymnastics clubs in their efforts to protect gymnasts from abuse. This initiative will utilize child sexual abuse prevention trainings for gymnastics club staff developed by The NYSPCC specific to the sport. The trainings were developed with input from club owners, coaches and staff and further refined through feedback from trainings conducted at two gymnastics regional congresses and one national congress in 2019.
Each participating agency will receive free training and technical assistance from The NYSPCC. Two to three staff from each agency will become trained as NYSPCC-certified Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Trainers using The NYSPCC’s training curriculum, Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Education for Club Owners, Coaches and Staff, and Facilitator’s Guide, as well as The NYSPCC/AAF Safe Gym Handbook outlining best practice policies for gymnastics clubs. These agencies will be funded for one year to provide training to gymnastics club staff and support clubs in implementing best practices in child protection. The NYSPCC will oversee the RFP process and the pilot project implementation.
Successful applicants will collaborate and work in partnership with The NYSPCC to implement the pilot project.
