Review for Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International (known as Kidpower), Santa Cruz, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I think Kidpower is an extraordinary program teaching people safety skills. I hope one day that it becomes part of every school program.

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

I first encountered kidpower when looking for a program to help my daughter learn how to be safe in our own neighborhood. I loved how effectively the lessons were taught and learned by the children in the workshop ina non scary yet empowering way.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be overwhelmed. They do so much, so well. I am delighted to be a part of this organization.

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

The respectful manner in which they operate with the public and their own trainees and employees. They are joyful, caring, thorough, and dedicated to their mission.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Thoughtful, skillful, dedicated, and ethical.

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

be able to offer the program for free to all schools. Imagine a world where everyone had a chance to learn how to keep clear boundaries and get help when you need it. A world where we all knew how to work together responsibly and safely.

Ways to make it better...

I was so impressed, I couldn't imagine doing a better job.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting people's attention. People are so busy and distracted, but when they have a chance to stop and find out what Kidpower has to offer, they love it.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The Kidpower program is simply wonderful. The great challenge of teaching is to find a way to teach so that the student is able to actually apply the skills, not just know about something. Kidpower succeeds in changing behavior positivley and effectivly

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & training to become a kidpower instructor.
