MEDFORD, Ore---The Children's Advocacy Center of Jackson County will offer a free child sexual abuse training session on Wednesday, at 5:30 p.m. 

It will be at the Children's Advocacy Center building, at 816 W. 10th St, in Medford. 

The event is free to the public. They prefer you register for the class here. However, they also welcome walk-ins. 

According to the Children's Advocacy Center, one in 10 children are sexually abused before they are 18. Of those, 90 percent know their abuser. 

The training happens every 3rd Wednesday of every month. It lasts for two and half hours. 

The training helps you reduce the likeliness that your child is put in a situation where they could be abused. It also helps you recognize the signs that another child is being abused. 

The Children's Advocacy Center says that 10 percent of a community being educated on a topic can create change. So, the center wants to get at least 10 percent of Jackson County educated on child abuse.
