Darkness to Light

What is D2L?

Darkness to Light (D2L) Stewards of Children is an interactive sexual abuse prevention training program. Ending childhood sexual abuse can only be accomplished by sharing the solution of prevention, awareness and education with more and more people.  This, in turn, builds momentum and over time, changes the way our nation and culture cares for, protects and nurtures our children. Being an active participant in the mission to end childhood sexual abuse is one of the most rewarding things we will ever do – and we cannot do it without you.

Learning the facts about childhood sexual abuse helps prevent it. Talking about it helps prevent it. Getting involved helps prevent it.  Children’s safety should not rest on their shoulders but on the shoulders of caring adults.

 Stewards of Children Training

D2L’s Stewards of Children curriculum is evidence-based and increases knowledge, improves attitudes and supports protecting children from child sexual abuse. Stewards of Children uses real people and real stories to show you how to protect children. You will leave the training with the desire and ability to make change happen.

The two-hour Stewards of Children training is offered monthly at McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center and can also be provided at your location.  The cost is $15 per participant, covering the cost of the interactive workbook. The training is approved for CEU’s for social work professional hours and by New York State Office of Child & Family Services.
