Revved Up Kids tailored a program for our Teen Girls, ages 12 to 18. It was extremely informative and most helpful for the girls to learn Self Defense Techniques. As a Mother/Daughter organization, the moms knew the class would be beneficial but we were pleasantly surprised by the number of girls who wanted to participate and their positive feedback. We highly recommend Revved Up Kids. Every teenage girl should attend this class!

I was really impressed with the class! I was able to observe while my 12 year old daughter took the class. The information presented was real and helpful. She really enjoyed the class and took away a lot of great tips! Thank you for making a difference!

My group of middle school-aged Girl Scouts participated in a Safety Class with Revved Up Kids. Alli & David were fantastic to work with before the event, and were incredibly helpful and responsive to questions and concerns. The class content was detailed, with information and examples that were very relatable to the girls. The girls especially loved the hands-on portion of the class, during which they learned how to defend themselves in a variety of dangerous situations. The parents all had very positive feedback, especially as related to the portions of the class that concerned social media, and helping girls overcome their fear of being "impolite" when in uncomfortable/potentially dangerous situations,

Revved Up Kids is a remarkable organization that provides relevant and timely information to our children about being safe and aware of their surroundings. They are professional and very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend them to other non-profits and look forward to working with them again in the future.

I took my 3 grandchildren to this training, and I was very pleased with what was taught and the way it was taught. Revved Up Kids is doing very important work to keep our kids safe, and I applaud and appreciate their dedication to this. I highly recommend this training for all children. P.S. I also learned self-defense skills!!

What an awesome program! So well organized even before the event itself. My 24 girl Girl Scout troop (10-11 year olds) were engaged and interested. The content base was totally age appropriate. They had lots of questions so we certainly could have used longer than 1 hour. Very satisfied!
