Darkness to Light's:
STEWARDS OF CHILDREN TRAINING!
Darkness to Light is a national nonprofit committed to empowering adults to prevent child sexual abuse. They are guided by a vision to create a world where child sexual abuse does not exist. They believe that every child has the right to a happy, healthy, and safe childhood, and that protecting children is an adult responsibility. They also believe that education is critical for prevention efforts and that all successful initiatives start in the local community. Using an evidence-informed approach, Darkness to Light programs teach adults to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
At CAC Lapeer, we have two trained facilitators of the Stewards of Children training. Our goal is to spread awareness and knowledge through this training to Lapeer County in order to recognize, reduce, and prevent child abuse within our Community.
This training discusses the prevalence and consequences of child sexual abuse by educating adults about the steps they can take to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. Stewards of Children is an evidence -informed child sexual abuse prevention, recognition, and intervention training which has been shown to change child-protective behaviors.
