What is Kidpower’s effect in my school? Empowered children.

"What is Kidpower’s effect in my school? Empowered children. Empowered to stand against bullies because they have been given the vocabulary to do so. Empowered to stand against predatory adults because they have the awareness to do so—as did the young boy last year who he shouted ‘No!' and fled back to our school from an adult closing in on him. Empowered to stand together as they move on into middle school, with the fully developed expectation that people respect and protect themselves and each other. Kidpower has been a major partner here in preparing our children internally, systemically, against the risk factors in an increasingly risky world. These people are smart, loving, appropriate, and powerful for kids."

I would highly recommend Kidpower classes

"Kidpower of Colorado Springs worked with our chapter to customize their outstanding curriculum to the needs of students who are deaf or hard of hearing. They added even more visual cues, incorporated interpreters, and edited scenarios so that our kids could definitely relate to the role plays. Parents were so pleased to see their children be able to confidently draw boundaries in class, and I know that practice will be reinforced at home to help keep kids safe. I would highly recommend Kidpower classes to any group of kids!"

Kidpower’s training has given our Zach’s Place Program staff the tools they need

“Children with disabilities, in the overall child population, are at a greater risk for abuse and neglect. Kidpower’s training has given our Zach’s Place Program staff the tools they need to help children with disabilities practice personal safety in their day to day activities. We are amazed to see the increase in safety awareness that the children have for themselves and for each other.”
