This presentation will examine the sub group of child molesters who prey on youth service organizations such as schools, churches, boys and girls clubs, and athletic organizations. Typical case scenarios, offender “MOs” and “grooming” tactics will be covered. Workshop information was collected from approximately 50 sex offenders whose offenses occurred via private and public institutions, and resulted in prosecution and referral to long-term sex offender treatment. Witness statements from children, co-workers, administrators and investigators will also be used to illustrate some of the more common “onlooker” experiences to these crimes. Specialized prevention and “staff development” training programs fro employees, volunteers and parents will also be discussed.
This workshop will be given by Cory Jewell Jensen on Tuesday, November 13 of JOINING FORCES from 3:00 until 4:30 pm.

She has worked with adult sex offenders and their families for 28 years and provided training or consultation to The National Center for the Prosecution of Child Abuse, The United States Navy, The Mark McGwire Foundation for Children, and a number of law enforcement, child advocacy and Faith based organizations.
