Prevention Month August

Prevention Month is D2L's month long awareness initiative that happens each August. All year long we focus on prevention but in August we dial it up a few notches and partner with the media to bring even more attention to the issue. During August there are many things you and your organization can do to Join the Movement to END child sexual abuse. Read on!

Partner in Prevention Profiles

The Lowcountry Pregnancy Center is located in North Charleston, South Carolina and serves not only women but also families, husbands, boyfriends, and friends.

They help the individual explore the different options and steps while providing them with continual support.

Montessori Day School is located in North Charleston, South Carolina and has programs and classes available for children ages 18 months to 9 years of age. The school provides a means where education is used to stimulate a child’s natural desire to understand the world around them by igniting academic progress and freedom of expression through the Montessori model and diverse cultural arts programs. The curriculum focuses on the child’s individual needs and celebrates their unique differences.

Join the Movement Mondays

D2L is fortunate to have the support of so many restaurants in the tri-county area. Each Monday night during the month of August participating restaurants will donate 10% or more of their proceeds to D2L! This is a great opportunity to enjoy the local culinary flavor while supporting our efforts to end CSA.

Partner in Prevention

A Partner in Prevention is an organization that has committed the time and effort to educate themselves on how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to CSA. An organization receives the D2L Partner in Prevention distinction when they have successfully met specific criteria. Learn more and see which of our local organizations are Partners.

Training

Learn how you can protect the children in your life by participating in one of our Stewards of Children sessions. This 2 1/2 hour program is for any adult who cares about or for children. All sessions during the month of August are free and open to the public (unless otherwise indicated.) In less than 3 hours you can learn how to prevent abuse, recognize the warning signs, and react if abuse is discovered. See the full schedule of events here. 

Sponsors 

D2L wants to thank our fantastic sponsors for joining the movement and supporting this year's Prevention Month. Prevention Month could not happen without the dedication of these organizations and companies who have made the commitment to help end CSA.
