The facts are shocking.  One in 10 children will be the victim of sexual abuse before their 18th birthday. Despite this startling statistic, it’s a silent epidemic that people are afraid to talk about.  To prevent abuse, we have to break through the stigma and shame, and talk about how the sexual abuse of children happens. It’s the only way we will be able to stop what is arguably the number one health crisis that children face today.

To Stop Child Sexual Abuse, We Must Understand It.  Child sexual abuse takes many forms, and they aren’t just physical. At its core, child sexual abuse is any sexual act between an adult and a minor, or between two minors when one exerts power over the other. It also includes non-contact acts such as exhibitionism, exposure to pornography, and voyeurism. Child sexual abuse can occur anywhere. It happens in places like homes, neighborhoods, schools, and youth sports environments, but it also occurs online, such as child pornography or communicating in a sexual manner by phone or internet.

When presented in a group setting, Stewards of Children®, is led by a Darkness to Light Authorized Facilitator.

Engaging and thought provoking, group led sessions include:

  • A two-part DVD presentation with commentary from sexual abuse survivors, experts in the field and concerned adults.
  • Facilitator-led discussion emphasizes important issues in prevention within the community and organizations that serve children and youth.
  • An interactive workbook facilitates discussion, reinforces key concepts, and serves as a resource and personal action plan for resolving child sexual abuse.
