Skills to Stop Prejudice-based Violence
People who are targets for hate/bias-motivated crimes because of their sexual orientation, gender identity, race, religion, disability, culture, or other differences are often at much greater risk of facing bullying, harassment, abuse, and assaults. Learning how to make wise choices, deescalate conflict, defend themselves, and get help, can help people stay safe from most emotional and physical violence. By preparing everyone – adults and kids alike – to recognize and take action to stop prejudice even if someone’s differences make them uncomfortable, we can create cultures of safety and respect in our families, schools, and communities.
Workplace Safety and Teamwork
Our district has been very excited to discover and experience the philosophy, depth, adaptability, and practicality of Kidpower’s training and educational materials. The Kidpower curriculum empowers students, parents, and teachers by using a strengths-based approach to create a culture of safety.Kathy Marshall

Why Choose Kidpower?
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.
The Kidpower Method resonates around the world. Professionals and NGOs work with us to adapt the Kidpower system 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.
There are many options for learning how to use Kidpower’s exceptional interpersonal safety curriculum through our extensive online library, teaching books, partnerships, and training programs. We provide training and licensing for a wide range of schools and organizations.
Have fun introducing and teaching safety skills! Our books, lessons, posters, homework assignments, and other teaching aids offer step-by-step role plays and engaging cartoon stories to help adults present the ideas and encourage children to learn and practice vital safety skills in a way that’s fun and age-appropriate.
We welcome people of any age, culture, religion, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, any kind of disability, political belief, nationality, marital status, or level of income, who share our commitment to integrity and safety for everyone and who can join us in upholding our values. We provide programs tailored for people who face greater risks because of disabilities, mental health problems, or other life challenges, such as prejudice, homelessness, poverty, or being elderly.
Bring skills for lifelong safety and confidence to the important people in your life. We provide customized in-person and online training, as well as our Skills for Child Protection Advocates 3-day Institutes and Kidpower Core Program Trainings every year.
Join with us in promoting Child Protection Advocacy around the world – and special actions in September for International Child Protection Month!
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.
Kidpower is a very diverse organization where people of many different political views, faiths, and cultures share a strong common vision: To work together to create cultures of caring, respect, and safety for everyone, everywhere. Our mission is to teach people of all ages and abilities how to use their power to stay safe, act wisely, and believe in themselves.
