Because children are our most valuable resource
And have the right to be safe.

What we do!

Children require age-appropriate tools and skills to stay safe.  With KidSafe Foundation’s personal safety and smart decision-making education, children learn to recognize their feelings, go to their Safe Adults, and speak assertively when they feel uncomfortable.  Through a fun—not fearful—interactive education, they can be taught what a right to safety really means and that there is strength and support in asking for help.

 

Children need to be able to rely on their Grown-Up 

so, we teach adults how to keep them safe.

 

Adults, just like children, need to learn how to communicate safety awareness and skills to children.  When we foster an open discussion with our children, students, and kids in our care, we teach them that coming to a trusted adult will protect them.  From educators, to parents, to child-serving professionals in the community, we offer trainings that make adults better vanguards of safety for children.

Heathcare Professionals Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training

This one-hour, self-guided, inline training, provides healthcare professionals from all backgrounds with a foundational knowledge of child sexual abuse (CSA), Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), prevention of abuse, response to disclosure and reporting. With over 60 million adult survivors of CSA in the United States today, and 1 in 10 children being sexually abused before their 18th birthday it is imperative that healthcare professionals have the knowledge and skills to address present and past abuse of their patients.

How we achieve it!

Mateo_Pose_2_NoBackground

Since 2009, KidSafe Foundation has empowered over 60,000 children with personal safety education!  But we do more than protect them from sexual abuse.

 

We teach children safety tools and skills that help them make safe and smart choices in all areas as they become healthy, powerful adults!

 

And because children need educated, aware protectors, we have taught over 50,000 Grown-ups (parents, guardians, teachers, child-serving professionals) how to keep them safe.

 

 

Children are not born knowing how to avoid danger

so, we teach them.

Why we do what we do!

    We value the equitable delivery of education, especially education that saves children from sexual abuse. A society that recognizes that marginalized children are the most vulnerable to abuse, exploitation, and trafficking and that ensures personal safety education is easily provided to all educators, is a society that can build communities which are safer, inclusive, and able to embrace social change.
