Adult education is key to preventing child sexual abuse.

1 out of 10 children will be sexually abused before they turn 18. Chances are, someone you know has been impacted. Research shows that people who are sexually violated as children are far more likely to experience psychological problems often lasting into adulthood, including post-traumatic stress syndrome, depression, suicide, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, school dropout and relationship problems.

Darkness to Light understands that learning the facts about childhood sexual abuse helps prevent it. Talking about it helps prevent it. Getting involved helps prevent it. The truth is, if childhood sexual abuse can be prevented, it can be stopped.

That’s why we exist, to empower adults through awareness and educational programs to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

“The Stewards of Children® video and workbook is not only a curriculum of well-researched child sexual abuse facts and information, it is a process of consciousness raising. Throughout the presentation and workbook reflection, participants are called to examine their personal responses to child sexual abuse. This program will bring about powerful child sexual abuse prevention efforts!”
