Stewards of Children Initiative
Prevention Focus: Primary – Education/Awareness and Training

With the goal of preventing child sexual abuse statewide, this project will expand the Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children training initiative. The evidenced-informed Stewards of Children curriculum focuses on improving the child-protective behaviors of adults that are responsible for children and is designed to increase knowledge, improve attitudes and change participants’ behavior over the long-term. The project will build upon current and past efforts by offering additional training, building an engaged network of trained facilitators and training school personnel beginning with districts in southwest Missouri.
