My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Impact Personal Safety, SoCal, Los Angeles, CA, USA
I took the Women's Basics class and the skills I learned I carry with me every day of my life. The staff was professional, the class was supportive and organized, and the material was informative, practical and explained in a way that was empowering. What was the most useful was the verbal skills we learned. I had underestimated how difficult it would be to use my voice and say no, or tell a stranger to move away from me. But once I found my voice I feel stronger and more powerful and much more capable of setting boundaries and keeping myself safe without having to use physical skills. But the fact that I now know so many physical skills for a variety of scenarios, I walk through my life tall, proud and fearless because I know I have options if a situation goes bad. I can now make a choice about how I will respond, vs before when I knew I wouldn't have the faintest idea of how to respond. Thank you IMPACT for giving me confidence, knowledge and empowerment. My life hasn't been the same.
