Dr. Harold Johnson, Emeritus Professor of Education, has been a passionate advocate for the well-being of children with disabilities for many years and is deeply committed to making knowledge about how to protect children of all abilities from bullying, violence, and abuse as widely accessible as possible. He has led the production of the following short videos, interviewing Kidpower founder and executive director, Irene van der Zande, to describe each of Kidpower’s 7 strategies for keeping children safe and how to apply these concepts to your daily life.
Our inspiring five-minute One Million Safer Kids video shows Kidpower in action — including children and parents practicing skills and the story of how Kidpower got started. Since 1989, Kidpower has helped to protect more than 4 million young people from bullying, violence, and abuse – and to prepare them to develop positive relationships that enrich their lives. We hope to boost that number rapidly through our One Million Safer Kids initiative.
Kidpower has been working with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) since 2011 to develop resources specifically to address the problems of sexual abuse in youth sports by developing recommended policies and procedures, and producing videos that can be used to help educate coaches, parents and youth sports leaders on HOW to keep young people safe from sexual abuse.
Through a collaboration with Hope Developmental Services, these videos show how to practice six skills in Kidpower’s “Safety Plan for Going Out” — Stay Aware, Stay Together, Check First, Think First, Move Away and Get Help. These videos show people with Autism and other learning challenges practicing the Kidpower Safety Signals and role plays for going out in the community.
Most camp counselors and recreation leaders are wonderful people who are completely dedicated to the well being of the children in their care. Unfortunately, a very few have bad intentions and can cause tremendous harm. To help keep your kids safe when they are away from you, we encourage you to take a few minutes to watch this Kidpower parent-education video with advice for how to evaluate the programs before sending your children and teaching kids self-protection skills.
This moving, 5-minute video was created by the Teen Advisory Board of Kidpower of Colorado Springs to inspire all teens and adults to take action. Seeing the faces and hearing the voices of these exceptional young people stating what bullying is and the impact it has had on their lives is tremendously powerful.
These short informal Puppet Power videos show show how important safety skills can be taught in a lighthearted way to young children. Watch them together and then make up your own role plays with dolls and puppets to give your child practice in the skills shown. For older kids and even adults, you can demonstrate the same concepts with forks, spoons, salt shakers, pencils, or any object at hand
