From Special Reports

The Coweta Community Foundation along with the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy will host Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children training for nonprofit board members and nonprofit organization volunteers.

In February, the Coweta Community Foundation offered Darkness to Light training at The Newnan Centre with instructor Krista Gonce. She’ll be returning on July 18, when the Foundation will again offer this free training to the community in an effort to help end child sexual abuse.

The training will be held on Tuesday, July 18 from 10 a.m. to noon at The Newnan Centre, 1515 Lower Fayetteville Rd., Newnan, and it is available to local nonprofits as well as any interested citizens.

Darkness to Light (D2L) has championed the movement to end child sexual abuse since its founding in 2000. With affiliates in all 50 U.S. states and 16 international locations, D2L provides individuals, organizations and communities with the tools to protect children from sexual abuse. To date, the D2L network of 6,000 authorized facilitators has trained over 500,000 parents, youth-serving professionals and organization volunteers in D2L’s award-winning Stewards of Children child sexual abuse prevention program.
