Darkness to Light – Stewards of Children

Michele Wilson, SAFE’s Prevention Educator is an Authorized Facilitator of the Darkness to Light training for community groups, teachers, administrators, parents and youth serving organizations.



Stewards of Children® uses real people and real stories to show you how to protect children. The framework of the training is built off the foundation of The 5 Steps to Protecting Children™.

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. Many of these survivors and experts are also parents themselves.



Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent health problem children face, with the most serious array of consequences. In fact, 1 in 10 children will experience sexual abuse before their 18th birthday.

This means that whether you work with youth, are a parent, or are simply a member of a community, it is highly likely that someone you know or care for has experienced, or is currently experiencing, child sexual abuse. It’s going to happen whether you are prepared to deal with it or not – unless you stop it from happening. And the good news, it can be stopped.

Stewards of Children® is available in English and Spanish. The Spanish version is hosted by psychologist and CNN medical contributor Dr. Maris Azaret.

Prevention education can be scheduled by calling Michele Wilson (503) 397-7110, or email: michelew@safeofcolumbiacounty.org
