As a Kidpower Instructor as well as a PE teacher, I can honestly say that having a 'Kidpower culture' in a school helps to promote respect and boundaries for each student. It offers useful tools to use on the playground as well as in my PE classes. Along with that, the care and concern that the Kidpower administration provides for its Instructors is a shining example for us to pass on to all who attend Kidpower workshops.

We love Kidpower! I teach at Sun Dragon Martial Arts and Self Defense in Austin, Texas, and we use many of the Kidpower resources. They have a great newsletter with lots of free articles, and I would highly recommend their books to any teacher, parent, or other adult who wants to be able to talk with kids about safety in a way that is fun and not at all scary.

As an elementary/middle school Principal and Licensed Educational Psychologist, I have experienced the power of Kidpower through workshops my students have attended. The positive, proactive approach is one of the most effective strategies to keep children safe, secure and confident. In a time when we often turn on the news to hear only the negative, I find it important to acknowledge such a forward-thinking organization. Kidpower has contributed to a healthy, supportive climate at my school and I am thankful for their work!

I've been to a workshop with my daughter and granddaughter and my granddaughter loved it and learned some skills that she likes using. I am a family law attorney and I routinely carry a kidpower coloring workbook in my briefcase. When I see a bored, cranky small child in the courthouse hall who is figiting and driving his/her parent nuts, I give the pagges to them and so far, both parent and child have become interested and entertained. The materials offered by this group are very worthwhile and helpful.

As a family law attorney, I gave the wotkbook to a client who'5 year old was acting angry and hitting children who said mean things to him. He wouldn't let her stop reading it to him and wanted to start over when they were finished. The next day he told his mom that when a child had been mean to him, he decided that the child was not safe and used his walk away power to solve the problem. He and my client were very pleased. This really should be taught in schools.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I provide psychotherapy primarily to sexually abused children and their families. Many of my clients also have developmental disabilities such as Down Syndrome or other cognitive delays. In addition to teaching skills that help prevent abuse and assault, I have found that my clients who go through a Kidpower workshop are helped significantly in their recovery process from abuse. This is because the children AND their caring adults learn to regain their power, their body integrity and their abilty to take charge of situations and stay safe. Thank you Kidpower!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide safety skills to those who need them most but cannot access the services due to money, transportation, language and other barriers.

My name is James Shang, I am a martial arts and self defence instructor in Australia. For over 30 years I have ben providing self defence training. Through a book by Gavin De Becker I came across KidPower. After researching KidPower i ordered their instructors manual and was amazed at content. The KidPower drills and lesson plans have exponentially increased the effectiveness of our Kids Safety Classes. I actually took holidays so I could immerse myself in the book. I can assure you the 5 star rating is well and truly deserved. KidPower do a brilliant job at providing the most effective and fun way to teach Children how to keep safe.

I'm a kindergarten teacher in Switzerland and I've got two little girls myself. I think Kidpower is great! This organization is doing a very important job! The workshops are big fun and the kids learn how to be safe in everyday situations! I wished, every child and all parents could do a Kidpower workshop over here... :)

Kidpower is one of our favorite organizations, one we make a point to donate to regularly. They help kids and the adults who love them navigate in a sometimes confusing and unsafe world, and they do with heart and humor and lots of cheering, which is really fun. Helping kids grow up to trust themselves and feel at home in their bodies is one of the best gifts we can give.

The Great!

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

how my neices, now a few years older, still use what they learned in the workshop.
