Prevent 360° & The Somer Sunshine Scholarship

Protecting children from abuse and other types of victimization requires a 360° approach. From adults, to children, to organizations and communities – we all play a critical role in preventing abuse.

We are stronger together.


MBF has partnered with Darkness to Light to provide organizations and communities with the highest quality prevention programs for adults and youth, backed by evidence and research. As a Prevent 360° partner, you can now access MBF and Darkness to Light programs both at preferred pricing*.

What is Prevent 360°?

Prevent 360° is a comprehensive approach, giving both adults and children the skills they need to prevent abuse. Prevent 360° is ideal for daycares and schools, child advocacy centers, youth sports, youth-serving organizations, and faith-based groups. The complementary skills taught through Prevent 360° give children and adults a common language and expectation that can help keep children safe.


*When using the two programs together, both MBF and Darkness to Light are offering a 10% discount!




The Somer Sunshine Scholarship

To help individuals take the Darkness to Light Stewards of Children online training, MBF is offering the Somer Sunshine Scholarship to residents of Northeast Florida.

This scholarship is provided by the generous support of Children’s Safe Passage and the Somer Sunshine Foundation and is offered in loving memory of Somer Thompson.

Somer was a beautiful, happy seven-year old girl who was abducted, sexually assaulted, and killed by a sexual predator. To learn more about Somer and the Somer Sunshine Foundation, please visit

To prevent this from ever happening to another child, and to prevent the sexual victimization of children by anyone, please take the online Stewards of Children training today.

If you are a resident of Northeast Florida (living in Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, or St. Johns counties), you can access the Stewards of Children training at no cost by completing the below form.

While the scholarship is offered to Northeast Florida residents, the Stewards of Children training is available to anyone for just $10.00 through the Darkness to Light website.
