  • Awareness, advocacy, and intervention on behalf of all young people of all abilities.
  • Empowerment of young people to take charge of their own lives as they learn, play, and grow.
  • Listening to and learning from young people.
  • Encouraging adult leadership in keeping kids safe.

As a community of caring adults, whether we are family, friends, neighbors, volunteers, or paid staff,  we must work together to:

  • Prevent and stop child maltreatment including all forms of bullying, violence, and abuse.
  • Advocate for positive child development policies, practices, and education with our families, schools, youth-serving organizations, and professional groups.
  • Provide kids and their adults with knowledge, skills, and experiences to help young people be safe and thrive.
  • Provide opportunities for young people to develop self-advocacy skills and to speak for themselves.

Learn HOW to advocate, intervene and empower young people by:

Kidpower Core Program Training – a 6-day training for individuals who want to learn to teach our programs, either as a Kidpower Certified Instructor, or to bring Kidpower skills training to your organization and become an authorized service provider.
