Guam Public Schools Using SATC’s K-12 Curricula

In July 2015, the Sex Abuse Treatment Center (SATC) trained two members from the Office of the Attorney General of Guam, Attorney General Elizabeth BarrettAnderson and Deputy Attorney General of the Family Division Carol Hinkle-Sanchez, on SATC’s K-12 Sexual Violence Prevention Curricula. The curricula cover age-appropriate lessons around sexual violence prevention and developing healthy, respectful relationships.

A priority for Guam, education is a key measure the territory is taking to address child sexual abuse prevention. Barrett-Anderson stated, “This curriculum is so important because it teaches children to recognize when sexual abuse might happen, the skills to protect themselves, and to know how to get help.”

Since being trained, Barrett-Anderson and Hinkle-Sanchez began rolling out trainings with public school teachers in Guam, who will implement classroom lessons starting in 2016. As neighbors in the Pacific, SATC is grateful to partner with Guam with a common mission to prevent sexual violence
