I'm a donor to Kidpower because I'm a firm believer in their mission. Kidpower is an excellent ressource to the community. Kidpower deserves to be financially supported because of this. And I am particularly fond of their time honored policy to never turn anyone away for lack of money.

For over more than 15 years, I'm engaged with the team of Kidpower in Montréal. My work, as volunteer took place after I personnaly had many classes with them. A wonderful experience, again and again. Confucius said something like "Honorable mean start by doing what he wants to teach and that teach it". All people from this organization that I had met - from all over the world - just simply apply to this. Be what you teach and that's an everyday lesson for me.

I took a full force class through Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower. It was amazing :-) When I walked into the class I was scared, nervous and really did not want to be there. By the end of the day I was still nervous but very excited to see that I had more power then I thought I had. They taught me to walk with my head held high and be proud. I re-discovered all kinds of things that should have been common sense but for some reason I was no longer able to see. I ended up loving every minute of the course. The instructors where enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very sympathetic to my situation they took to the time to help me (not just me but everybody that was there). I have been able to teach my daughter some of the things that they taught me. The skills that I learned are skills that everybody should know. I will be taking more classes with them. I will also be taking my daughter to classes as well. I would recommend there classes to anybody. The impact that they had on me will be long lived. I walked in scared and nervous and walked out proud and tall. I would endorse Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower with every ounce of my being, for everybody that would like to learn every day safety skills, boundary setting, full force safety skill… This class that I took covered all of those things and more. I can’t say enough about the whole experience. Two major thumbs up to say the least.

Before taking this class I was scared and nervous in public settings. I can now take my daughter to the parc and enjoy it. The confidence that they gave me is amazing. The skill that I learned are priceless.

I am from Germany and I went to several instructor trainings to become a Kidpower instructor. From Germany it is a long way to go to CA and the flights are really expensive but for me it was always worth to do that. I learned a lot in the instructor trainings not only to teach children how to stay safe also for my whole life how I can protect myself and how to cope with difficult situations. Thanks a lot Kidpower!

I took my daughter to a workshop, and she really loved it. Both my kids were excited to learn easy ways to describe their feelings, and strategies to help them deal with other kids at school who were causing problems. They like to practice the skills, and are getting good at telling me what they think the right reaction is to various situations. And we all use the trash can (a way of handling negative remarks) all the time. Overall, Kidpower is a great organization, and I wish all kids had a chance to go to the workshops.

California, where I see kids learning to articulate and respect their own boundaries.

Very negative experience. The price is outrageous, esp. for a group of very young kids. The teaching is so common sense. We learned more from our American Girls book. My girlfriend could not make it because her child was sick, and she was told if they gave her a refund they would be below their break even cost. Uh - really? Donated space, one instructor, and $60 per kid for a room full of kids? The snack is water and crackers? And you can't refund for a parent of a sick child? The instructor was arrogant, reciting a canned speech, and would not take questions. Overall, a 100% negative experience.

I was mesmerized from the beginning. The training provided great insight and extremely powerful, realistic tools for children, and all people to take the power they have to care for themselves. I must admit the training brought up many feelings of powerlessness from my childhood, with a sort of joy and sadness that such tools were not available to me then. I love the idea that no one is powerless and that the right tools can make you strong.

Our children would live in a much safer world if all kids and parents had the opportunity to receive Kidpower instruction at schools and other community locations. The only limit is funding!

My kids attended Kidpower sessions and I was so impressed at the effectivness of the training. They really know what they are doing. The role-playing and practice means that kids not only know what to do, but will actually do it in a stressfull situation. I felt my kids were much safer after attending the sessions. This is a super program!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the fact that my kids really knew what to do if someone approached them or was inappropriate and I felt they would actually be able to respond as they were taught.
