Child Sexual Abuse Prevention

Prevent Child Abuse Missouri coordinates the statewide implementation of the evidence-based child sexual abuse prevention curriculum Stewards of Children: Adults Protecting Children from Sexual Abuse.

Stewards of Children is a training program that educates adults to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse, and motivates them to courageous action.  Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children training is designed for organizations that serve children and adolescents, providing prevention training for staff, volunteers, parents, and other interested adults.

Prevent Child Abuse is leading the state’s initiative to provide the Stewards of Children training to 250,000 adults by 2020, thereby reducing the occurrence of child sexual abuse in Missouri, allowing for safe, productive childhoods to be enjoyed by all of Missouri’s children.
