Child sexual abuse prevention training


A free session on preventing child sexual abuse will be offered by the Hockomock Area YMCA from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 7 at the Foxborough Public Safety Building, 8 Chestnut St. The program is designed to help people prevent, recognize, and react to child sexual abuse. Foxborough has been rocked in recent months by allegations that at least 28 men were sexually abused as children decades ago by former teacher, scout leader, and swim coach William E. Sheehan, now of Florida. The Stewards of Children Training has been developed by Darkness to Light, a national nonprofit organization. Because space is limited, registration is required 24 hours in advance of the event. To register, contact Tony Calcia at 508-643-5226 or at For more information, visit
