Our Programs


Stewards of Children

Stewards of Children® is a child sexual abuse prevention program developed by the national organization Darkness to Light. This program educates adults to prevent, recognize and react appropriately to child sexual abuse. This training program is designed for parents and any adults who work with children or adolescents.



QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer- the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. QPR is not a form of counseling or treatment. Rather it is intended to offer hope through positive action. By learning QPR you will come to recognize the warning signs, clues and suicidal communications of someone in trouble and gain skills to act vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy.



Lifelines is a comprehensive youth suicide prevention program that targets the entire school community. It has four sequential components for administration, school faculty/staff, parents, and students. 


Child Lures Prevention

Indiana Center for Prevention of Youth Abuse and Suicide is proud to partner with Child Lures Prevention to bring Think First & Stay Safe™ and Teen Lures® school curriculum to classrooms throughout Central Indiana.

Think First & Stay Safe™ teaches students to identify and outsmart the lures that are universally used in predatory crimes against children, most often by someone the child knows. Students learn essential personal safety skills to improve self-reliance and raise self-esteem, while being consistently reassured that most people are kind, safe and committed to their well-being.


Teen Lures Prevention

To make personal safety and teen sexual assault education compelling for older students, the interactive Teen Lures TV Newscast curriculum was created for middle and high school students as an extension of Think First & Stay Safe™.

Teens wanted a program they could call their own. The Teen Lures Prevention website, student-led TV Newscasts and corresponding teacher-facilitated Class Discussions were created specifically with these students in mind. The curriculum was formulated to deeply involve teens in the learning process via student anchors and peer learning.
