For the past 28 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.

Starting Strong Workshops are an introduction to People Safety Skills for young children ages 4-6 and their parents/caregivers. 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.
The workshop includes a break-out session for parents/caregivers at the end of class allowing a time for information and questions out of earshot of the children. Children will be supervised by Kidpower staff in a playroom next to the parents’ area and easily accessible as needed.

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.
