My daughter took a Kidpower workshop two years ago at age 12, and it increased her skills, awareness and confidence. She's small and slight for her age, so it also helped lessen my anxiety about her safety. Now that she is in a large high school with an open campus, I plan to take her back to Kidpower for another workshop to refresh and add to her skills. Kidpower provides an excellent and unique community service.

We had an excellent workshop for adults and we learned so much! Easy things to help our kids be safe, and feel empowered. I would recommend Kidpower highly!

I had been searching for the appropriate self-defense workshop that I could take with my 16-year old son and feel very fortunate to have found the Teenpower program. The instructors addressed the needs of all the participants based on their personal experiences, age, background and ability. They were caring, and experienced teachers. The program was interesting, informative, useful and fun all at the same time. I would highly recommend it and suggest that organizations look to offering similar programs in schools and community associations.

I took a KidPower seminar through my son's preschool and felt inspired and empowered as a parent and also just as a person. The "people safety" skills that KidPower teaches are important for kids and adults, alike. I've been using the information from the seminar with both of my children for the last year and am excited to be taking my daughter to a parent/child KidPower workshop next weekend.

The first Kidpower workshop I ever attended taught me more about parenting than any book I've ever read on the subject. I finally had useful language to use while trying to teach my son about how to behave in the world and keep himself safe! With the skills he and I have learned from Kidpower, I am confident about our journey through childhood. I look forward to attending more workshops as he enters adolescence so that I can help him better navigate that difficult period. I believe so deeply in what Kidpower is teaching that I have become a regular donor, and I have organized Kidpower workshops for parents in two of my son's schools in our home town. I think EVERYONE should have a chance to hear what they have to say. Even if you have parenting down to a science, I truly believe you can still learn from them.

We went to the Family safety training classes. The kids loved it, and are confident now when they deal with other adults. They both learned how to stand up for themselves, set healthy boundries, and protect themselves from stranger danger and from bullies if they ever need to.

My teen with LD and I traveled up to SF on a week night from Silicon Valley to attend the program, and it was worth it. I came away recommending the program to my child's school principal to incorporate in their guest speaker programs yearly! This session was oriented towards teens with disabilities, and it was excellent- took the information at an appropriate pace, and was fun and interactive for all. Thank you, Kidpower!

This is an amazing organization that approaches child safety in a way that is logical for the adults and not at all scary for the child. Our family has been influenced by KidPower in everyday speech and in how we approach safety.

Kidpower came to my daughter's school and did a presentation for the adults prior to the presentation with the children. I really enjoyed the presentation. There were so many tools that I learned that I wished someone had taught me as a child. I am so glad my daughters were able to participate in this program.
