All Personal Safety and Community Awareness Program workshops are designed to introduce children to basic personal safety information and to instill self-protective skills that reduce their vulnerability to victimization, exploitation, and abuse. Each lesson consists of developmentally appropriate concepts that are consistent with current research and intended to educate and empower students.
Parent, Professional, and Community workshops introduce participants to information vital to their fulfillment of our shared responsibility to protect children. All programs are free of charge and available for groups of any size.
