Tip Colorado empowers adults to help their communityand Coloradoreach a tipping point where children grow up happy, healthy, and safe in communities that prevent children from experiencing sexual abuse.

If enough adults in a community take a free live, interactive training, then, together, we can create a new standard of child safety throughout Colorado.

Reaching the tipping point is so important, we updated the Tip Colorado website to better connect you with trainings!

The new website features an interactive map showcasing how far each county is in their journey to reach their tipping point, information to help you decide which training to take first, and a calendar where you can view and sign up for trainings that work for your learning goals and schedule!

In order to prevent child sexual abuse, adults need to take greater responsibility to educate themselves on how to create safer communities where everyone is actively thinking about how to prevent children from experiencing sexual abuse.

At TipColorado.org, you can find more information on the simple, effective strategies adults can use to protect children from child sexual abuse.

All three trainings are currently provided for free to all Coloradans thanks in large part to support from the Colorado Children’s Abuse Prevention Trust Fund in the Colorado Department of Early Childhood.

Anne Auld, Illuminate Colorado Deputy Director

 

“There are multiple ways adults can prevent child sexual abuse. Having a spectrum of training opportunities that can be taken together, or individually, provides more tools and a better understanding of how child sexual abuse can be prevented in all kinds of settings, like youth serving organizations, schools, and at home.

For anyone working with children and youth, having a solid foundation of what healthy sexual development can look like, and how to talk about that development with other professionals or parents is vital in creating safe spaces, and recognizing when there may be problematic behaviors.”

“Each training is strength-based, discussion focused, and aims to increase confidence and knowledge on how we each play a role in preventing child sexual abuse.”
