Stewards of Children is the only evidence-informed, third-party evaluated child sexual abuse prevention training of its kind, and is nationally available in both English and Spanish. It can be taken online, or through a facilitator-led group session. I am a Darkness to Light authorized facilitator of this program, and I believe this training would benefit your staff, volunteers, and community. It can be administered to community members, schools, sports leagues, faith centers, youth serving organizations, and state agencies – basically to any adult or organization concerned about the well being of children.
Unlike some other child sexual abuse prevention programs that focus on educating children about concepts like good touch-bad touch, stranger danger, tricky people, etc., Stewards of Children focuses on adult education because ultimately, it is adults’ responsibility to keep children safe. This training approaches the difficult topic of child sexual abuse in a way that is inspiring, not fear-focused or depressing. It does not feature perpetrators of abuse, but instead uses a combination of advice from field experts, stories from adult survivors, and insight from concerned parents. This program’s practical, five-step approach is widely applicable and provides adults with the tools to protect the children in their lives and youth serving organizations.
