Darkness to Light Training - Protecting Children from Sexual Abuse


AutismUp offers Darkness to Light training throughout the year. Darkness to Light is a national non-profit organization that seeks to empower adults to prevent child sexual abuse. This training program empowers adults to prevent child sexual abuse.

During this award-winning Stewards of Children® prevention training, you’ll meet survivors who lived through child sexual abuse, experienced its immediate and long-term effects, and ultimately were able to find healing. You’ll meet experts who work with children and families and confront abuse on a daily basis. Lastly, you’ll find concrete steps that you can take to protect the children in your life. Know the steps!
