School/Agency Virtual Workshops

Program Overview

For more information or to schedule, contact us: programs@kidpowerCS.org, 719-520-1311

For the past 26 years, Kidpower has provided services to most school districts and many agencies in our community. During the pandemic, we quickly switched to virtual workshops and have gotten very positive feedback from school personnel, parents and kids!

Our new virtual school programs can be arranged by principals, mental health staff, PTO representatives or interested parents. Agency programs are organized by agency personnel.

As each school and agency differs, Kidpower is happy to customize programs to the specific needs of your group. Please call our office to discuss your school or agency’s particular situation and we can propose various lengths and formats to fit your needs. Kidpower also holds programs during the day and can be projected into classrooms. We are happy to discuss fees and scholarships for workshops by phone or email.

We know this is a challenging time for our school partners and we want to make access to Kidpower as easy as possible. We will handle all enrollments and will send language to help you publicize the program to your school/agency families.

The classes listed below are for kids, 1st through 5th grades, AND their parents/adults. We will be adding classes for younger and older students.

Students will practice safety skills with their adults in real time through structured, developmentally appropriate games, stories, and role-plays.

The workshops build on each other but because each workshop covers different topics, families may choose to enroll in one, two or all three of the workshops. Workshops typically are help from 6 to 7 pm, on three consecutive Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. Daytime workshops may be arranged.

Introduces safety rules for when kids are in a public place or on their own. Kids will learn how to walk, stand and move with awareness and confidence; Families will learn how to create Safety Plans for many situations when they are on their own including school, overnights, at the pool, skating rink, movies, or even in the front yard or neighborhood.
Kids will learn rules for staying home alone including with a sibling or for brief periods of time. They will learn the Kidpower Safety Rules to Check First/Think First before getting close to or talking to a stranger; taking anything from a stranger; changing the plan about who they are with or where they are going; and getting help in an emergency. They will learn and practice how to use strong, clear voices and to move away to safety when needed.
Part Three: Boundary Skills with People We Know
Kids will learn what boundaries are and how to set effective boundaries with people they know. They will practice using clear language to deal with emotional coercion and bribery. They will learn to tell an adult if they feel unsafe and to persist until they get the help they need. Kids will also learn ways to protect themselves from words that hurt.
