Reaching Individuals Along All Literacy Levels

This bulletin discusses how to engage youth as valued partners in sexual violence prevention work.

This manual is designed to help violence prevention organizations hire an empowerment evaluator who will assist them in building their evaluation capacity through a learn-by-doing process of evaluating their own strategies. It is for state and local leaders and staff members of organizations, coalitions, government agencies, and/or partnerships working to prevent sexual violence, intimate partner violence, youth violence, suicide, and/or child maltreatment.
 
The manual discusses seven steps an organization might take to hire an empowerment evaluator from preparing for the hiring process to assessing and sustaining the evaluation. Resources, worksheets, and sample documents are included to make the hiring process easier. The manual also includes “Field Notes,” documenting the experiences and lessons learned from CDC’s DELTA and EMPOWER grantees in hiring empowerment evaluators.

RAISING HEALTHY KIDS: Families Talk About Sexual Health, For Parents of Young Children

Juveniles commit a significant portion of the sex offenses that occur in the United States each year. They account for up to one-fifth of rapes and one-half of all cases of child molestation committed annually. In a 2000 study, data collected by the Bureau of Justice Statistics indicates that 23 percent of sexual assault offenders were under the age of 18. Boys ages 13 to 17 perpetrate most of the sexual crimes committed by juveniles, but recent studies have shown that girls under age 18 and children under age 13 have also committed sexual offenses. Across the country, police officials partnering with other stakeholders have implemented successful programs to manage offenders and prevent future sexual offending by juveniles. This brief describes trends observed in the field and the strategies employed by two law enforcement agencies to manage juvenile sex offenders in their communities.
