Stewards of Children®, a child sexual abuse prevention training

Stewards of Children® is the only evidence-informed, third-party evaluated child sexual abuse prevention training of its kind.  Stewards of Children® focuses on adult education because ultimately, it is adults’ responsibility to keep children safe. This training, created by Darkness to Light, uses survivor stories and expert insight to supply practical steps to help you prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse by implementing the “5 Steps to Protecting Children”: 1) learn the facts, 2) minimize opportunities for abuse to occur, 3) talking with children about our bodies, sex and boundaries, 4) recognizing the signs of abuse and 5) reacting responsibly to suspicions of sexual abuse.

The September Training will be led by Jenny Dodson-Weihl, an authorized facilitator of the Stewards of Children child sexual abuse prevention training. Jenny has worn many child advocacy hats over her 15+ year career. Working in the juvenile court system as the Training Coordinator for St. Louis City Court Appointed Advocates (“CASA” now, Voices for Children), she trained over 200 volunteer Guardians ad Litem to speak for the best interest of children in child welfare cases.  Jenny has also seen the importance of child sexual abuse prevention through her experience as a school law attorney, pre-school teacher, and volunteer coordinator.
