Five children will die from abuse today; 1 in 10 children are molested.
If hearing this sad reality makes you want to help, you’re in the right place.
In the fall of 2015, a group of Beau Biden’s friends got together to plan a charity golf outing to benefit the Foundation established in his name. Over the last six years, the Beau Biden Foundation’s Child Protection Classic has grown to become one of the premier charitable golf outings in the area.
Since that first event in 2015, the Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children has been working tirelessly to protect children and confront abuse. Our abuse prevention training and programming for schools and youth-serving organizations is the gold-standard in child protection. Our partnerships now span 20 states – over 10,000 adults have been trained to recognize and report child abuse, and more than 26,000 children participating in our Internet Safety training.
But there is so much more work to be done.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit earlier this year, the Beau Biden Foundation quickly shifted gears and developed two online workshops to help administrators, principals, and educators protect children in these uncertain times. As summer starts, many students and educators are still unsure if they will physically return to school, resume online schooling, or do a half-and-half model. Regardless of how we transition back, it is imperative to help protect children.
By joining us at one of our Child Protection Classics, you will help to provide training to front line child-serving professionals – educators, school counselors, and mentors – and protect children.
Please join us this year as we again gather to continue Beau’s commitment to protecting children and confronting abuse at two golf events in October 2020.
