Kidpower has been providing positive, skill-building ‘People Safety’ education programs to prevent and solve problems with people since 1989 ― adapted for all ages, abilities, and walks of life ― and used by millions of people to successfully to create cultures of respect and safety and to prevent and stop harm all over the world:

Why Choose Kidpower?

Evidence-Based Programs

Studies show that Kidpower Programs “improve participants’ safety skills knowledge, using best practices in victimization risk-reduction and prevention.” Check out the Research!

FUN — Not Scary!

Just talking about dangerous situations or hearing or seeing news about bad things that have happened increases anxiety and puts images into the heads of kids as well as sensitive adults that are emotionally unsafe. Practicing what to do and how to do it in ways that are fun and interesting increases both confidence and competence. Learn more about Kidpower’s Positive Practice™ Aproach.

Global Adaptability and Cultural Competence

The Kidpower Method resonates around the world. Professionals and NGOs work with us to adapt the Kidpower method of teaching interpersonal safety skills for their cultures and to learn how to bring our program to bring greater safety to the communities and people they serve.

I have seen first-hand the effectiveness of the Kidpower training in building community safety and in giving people effective skills for preventing domestic and relationship violence, abuse, and abduction. The training that Kidpower created for our officers was extremely useful in giving them more tools as ‘front-line’ social workers who are often needing to help people in crisis.
