Virtual Workshops

Kidpower virtual workshops are designed to be age and developmentally appropriate. They are highly interactive to ensure maximum participation by all.

Last year, 100% of parents surveyed regarding the quality of our virtual programs agreed that the workshop was very useful for their children.

“Well done on Zoom! Good energy and use of PowerPoint, video, stories, and interaction! Really great to be able to do this program from home.”

Starting Strong Workshops are an introduction to People Safety Skills for young children ages 4-6. Storytelling, puppets and interactive role-plays teach children simple but powerful skills to: act aware and confident, set boundaries, stop unwanted touch, handle unkind words, be safe with strangers, and get help from adults effectively, even when they are busy. This one-hour training introduces everyday safety skills and guides adults in practicing these skills together WITH their children.

This workshop helps answer the question, “How can we teach our children to be safe without scaring them?” in a fun, experiential way.

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.

An essential part of being emotionally safe in our relationships is communicating effectively and knowing how and when to set clear boundaries. This interactive workshop, designed for teen women(age 13-18) with their moms (or other adult women in their lives), will identify the basics of healthy relationships and allow participants to learn and practice skills we can use whether we are dealing with an everyday normal annoyance or in a bigger safety emergency.

For the past 27 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 school programs, virtual or in-person, 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.

In-Person Workshops

Some in-person SCHOOL workshops are currently scheduled and subject to change (see description above).
 
The Community Classes below are currently on hold due to COVID. 

The Weekend Family Workshop for kids ages 7-12 is the most comprehensive (and fun!) program Kidpower offers, incorporating a wide range of personal safety techniques, including awareness skills, boundary-setting and full-force self-protection skills with our head-to-toe padded instructors.

Starting Strong Workshops are an introduction to People Safety Skills for young children ages 4-6. Storytelling, puppets and interactive role-plays teach children simple but powerful skills to: act aware and confident, set boundaries, stop unwanted touch, handle unkind words, be safe with strangers, and get help from adults effectively, even when they are busy. This two-hour training introduces everyday safety skills (NOT physical self-defense skills) and guides adults in practicing these skills together with their children.

One parent or guardian is required to attend with their child. 

This workshop helps answer the question, “How can we teach our children to be safe without scaring them?” in a fun, experiential way. Fee includes a child’s T-shirt and Kidpower Coloring Book for at-home review of core concepts.

This one-day workshop for teenagers provides a safe and supportive environment for participants to learn and practice emotional and physical safety techniques. Students learn skills for healthy relationships and to set boundaries in uncomfortable or unsafe situations, including peer pressure, verbal attack and harassment. This program also uses a head-to-toe padded instructor to give students the opportunity for realistic and safe practice of simple and effective self-defense.
