Darkness to Light has developed a three-tiered Consulting Package designed to appeal to your organization type. With this three-tiered Consulting Package, our team works to co-create a solution with your organization. In doing so, each step is iterative and in response to a need as expressed by the organization. This intensive partnership ensures that the solution is crafted to meet the unique needs of your organization while adhering to industry-approved child protection standards.

Depending on your level of readiness, a Capacity & Culture, Analysis & Action, or Policy & Promotion Consulting Package will be made available. Although each package varies in time and intensity, each package comes with support from a Darkness to Light staff person for the duration of time that the organization has agreed to participate in the program.
