“Through her heartfelt, personal account, Cynthia Bland quickly connects with her audience on both a personal and emotional level. Her personal story as a child sexual abuse survivor provides hope and courage, and her experiences provide practical and effective strategies that can be used to prevent and respond to child sexual abuse.
Cynthia’s openness, honesty, strength, and resolve resonate with a range of audiences that include youth, adults, survivors, offenders and anyone interested in learning about how to protect children and youth from sexual abuse. Her passion engages the heart and the mind, while her authenticity creates a supportive and safe environment that allows audiences to connect with each other in their own way.
Cynthia was able to channel the pain, loss, and trauma that she endured throughout her life to the creation of an organization that strives to protect children.
Her journey to and after disclosure, led to the founding of Voice Found an organization she has dedicated her time, energy and life to. Her story and training instill hope in others, and they serves as a constant reminder that help, healing and hope is not only possible, but can lead to remarkable outcomes.”

“We would like to thank Voice Found for the tremendous work they did developing child sex abuse training, tailored to our program and our needs. For the first time in many, many years, our volunteers had the tools and got the proper training to help them.
Cynthia came personally to deliver the training and was able to add concrete examples that helped our volunteers aligned with our Prevention of Child Abuse Policy. We are happy to say that Voice Found is an important partner to Forum for Young Canadians and that we cherish our relationship with Cynthia and the organization.”
