Huron County | by Fadi Didi  

Program certifies residents to work with youth and open discussion about abuse.

A new program to help kids talk about abuse has come to Huron County.

"Safe Spaces Huron County" was introduced by the Rural Response for Healthy Children.

The program certifies adults in the community to work with youth, and help ease kids into discussion about possible abuse.

Safe Spaces was founded in Swift Current, Saskatchewan -- following revelations of sexual abuse involving the town's local hockey team, including star player Sheldon Kennedy.

Officials with the Avon Maitland District School Board were on hand for the unveiling of Safe Spaces Huron County, along with 40 students and Education Minister and Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson.
