The Stewards of Children training curriculum is a revolutionary sexual abuse prevention training program developed by a Charleston, SC based nonprofit, Darkness to Light (D2L) and is the only adult-focused, evidence-informed curriculum proven to increase knowledge and attitudes about child sexual abuse and to change behaviors promoting protective factors.
The one-time 2 ½ hour Stewards of Children program is available through a group session led by an authorized facilitator as well as online. Authorized facilitators are located throughout Georgia. The training is appropriate for parents as well as professionals and volunteers in youth-serving organizations such as schools, faith centers, camps, daycares, sports leagues, and clubs. Stewards of Children is also available in a Spanish-language version.
