Kidz Tool Box for Personal Safety


We are proud to announce our new program name,

Kidz Tool Box for Personal Safety. 

Every year we instruct  over 4,000 Kindergarten, 2nd grade and Special Needs students in San Luis Obispo County. children.  Our qualified Educators teach  assertiveness skills and model how to ask for help if they have a problem. Studies show that these are key skills lacking in children at risk for abuse. The lessons varies according to the grade level, and the skills targeted for practice are developmentally appropriate. At all grade levels, children have opportunities for skill practice and transfer of learning.

In addition, Educators provide a parent meeting upon request so families learn ways to talk with their children about personal safety; increase their understanding of child abuse concerns and pose questions about this sensitive topic.
