Darkness To Light's
Prevent-a-thon Mobilizes the Tri-County to Address Child Sexual Abuse!
Prevent-a-thon: What it Is
Prevent-a-thon is a month-long media event that drives people to take action to protect the children in their lives. It mobilizes the community to address the issue of child sexual abuse.
Raising Awareness of the Issue
Prevent-a-thon raises awareness of the problem by blanketing the area with news stories, supporting events, public service announcements and a public awareness campaign. In 2009, Darkness to Lights documentary ran multiple times on local networks and WCIV Channel 4 televised a Larry King style interview in prime time. The plans for the 2010 Prevent-a-thon are even bigger and better!
Educating the Community
Each day in August, Darkness to Lights nationally-acclaimed Stewards of Children child sexual abuse prevention training sessions are held without charge in a wide array of locations and venues. In addition, there are free training sessions for businesses, youth-serving organizations, schools and faith centers. Thousands of people take Darkness to Light's training during Prevent-a-thon, and many organizations pledge to host a training session in the coming months. There is no charge for these training sessions because Darkness to Light focuses most of its year-round local fundraising efforts on raising money for these scholarships.
Prevent-a-thon drives Darkness to Light's local
training initiative. It is expected that 23,000
tri-county adults will be been trained by the end
of the calendar year. This includes 100% of
Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester County
