Darkness to Light
Darkness to Light® Stewards of Children™ Online
Required for at least ONE volunteer per troop and should be completed once every three (3) years.
Darkness to Light is a revolutionary sexual abuse prevention training program that educates adults to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. The program believes and teaches that child safety is an adult’s job. The program is designed for organizations that serve children and youth and offers training on the 7 steps for protecting children from sexual abuse.
This training is not produced by Girl Scouts of the USA or GSLE. It is required by all volunteers working with children by the State of Louisiana.
Volunteers should go the Darkness to Light website to complete the training. There is a cost of $10 that must be paid via credit card. Once finished, print a copy of your certificate and submit it to your GSLE Membership Staff. Because it is an online course, the training can be done at your own pace and on your schedule. Fee is fully reimbursable from troop funds.
