Spartan’s Global Day of Service
Please help us to make a difference for every child by joining Michigan State University’s alumni, friends, families and students for our Grand Traverse Area Spartans’ annual “Global Day of Service” on Saturday morning, April 21 … by discovering how you may become a Spartan “Team Zero” advocate.
Team Zero is a public awareness and personal engagement campaign of the Traverse Bay Children’s Advocacy Center, with an ever-growing “team membership” of individuals and organizations from throughout northwest Michigan committed to bringing the rate of child sexual abuse in our region to…zero!
During the morning on Saturday, April 21, Team Zero “Global Day of Service” you will learn about the work of the Traverse Bay Children’s Advocacy Center, the reality of child sexual abuse in our community, take a “help, hope and healing” tour of the Center’s facilities, and get acquainted to what it means to “join the team” that makes a difference. Together we’ll be introduced to the knowledge and skills that will help keep children safe and secure at home, at school, and in the community.
Just one incident of child sexual abuse is too much. It’s up to us – each of us – to keep children safe. Team Zero is here to help every adult discover how to TALK about sexual health with our children and each other; how to PROTECT children from sexual abuse; and, how to REPORT abuse and suspicious behavior.
Please note: Volunteer registration closes on 4/20/18 at 12:00am.
