Community arts education organizations create an atmosphere that promotes learning, individual growth, and fun. But they also have an obligation to keep their students safe from potential harm—including the harm of sexual abuse. Prevention encompasses some basic questions: What constitutes inappropriate or harmful behavior? What can we do to prevent it? How do we recognize it? How do we respond? What should we do about abuse at home, whether suspected or revealed by a student?
