I've been taking Kidpower classes since I was a child. I've continued to take classes as a teenager and into my adulthood. Kidpower is a wonderful organization that teaches safety skills in a fun manner. They keep workshops relevant and age appropriate. The skills I've learned through Kidpower have definitely made me safer and more confident.

As soon as I went to the Kidpower website, I was impressed with their clear vision, their positivity, their the free and extensive library, and their vast array of services! Contacting them on the phone and by email was also a great, positive experience where my questions were answered, and I was directed to exactly what I needed. I could feel their warmth and dedication to helping people of all ages and abilities to be more safe and empowered in their lives! After taking their workshops for both myself and with our kids, my husband and I continued to be excited about what we had learned and wanted to share it with others. My family has been taught many important skills by Kidpower that we now use and can see the enormous benefit it would be for everyone to learn these skills. I know of many friends and acquaintances who feel the same way as they experience what Kidpower, Teenpower, Fullpower International has to share and contribute to the world!

My daughter took a weekend class and I was so amazed at how much confidence she has now and she is able to speak up about things she does not like even with her friends.

Thank you Kidpower!

Kidpower has taught me how to talk to my children about scary topics in a fun, non-scary way. My kids left the workshop saying, "That was so awesome!! When can we do another Kidpower class? "
Thanks to the expertise of the Kidpower curriculum, the whole family is aware, calm and confident about our safety.

Kidpower is amazing. Instead of adding fear around subjects like molestation, assault, harassment, violence, and bullying, they give positive skills-- boundaries, stranger safety, noticing things beginning to feel unsafe and taking action. Kippower puts complicated topics into simple language that actually works, and you think "Wow! Why didn't I think to just say it like that?" I've seen Kidpower change kids and parent's behavior and interactions for the better. Great program, and everyone in the org is truly dedicated and passionate.

Our daughter learned to feel strong if she is approached by a predator. She has a clear idea of what to do. "Stop right there!" and physical defense.

Kidpower has been an amazing resource in our community. I was first introduced to it after a scary incident involving an eight year old in our town. When everyone was filled with fear, Kidpower was able to address our issues while remaining positive and helping kids find empowerment in the middle of a difficult time. Their approach of ensuring that parents and children walk away with the same understanding of communication and expectations is so powerful. Since then, they have done safety training in my son's school and he has learned so much. He knows why he should walk away from threatening situations and how to feel more empowered to have his voice heard. What a positive and important message for our young people!

My three-year-old uses her Kidpower language ALL THE TIME! We play a game where I tickle her and as soon as she wants to, she puts her hands up and says, "Please stop!" Then she waits a second and says, "GO!" and I tickle her again! I love knowing that she's playing when she really wants to. Kidpower helps her feel safe making her own choices about what she likes and doesn't like, and helps her feel comfortable checking in with me whenever she's worried or confused.
