  • Articles must be credited with the following copyright statement at the bottom of each article:
    “Copyright © [Please Insert Year Listed in Article] Irene van der Zande. All rights reserved. Reprinted with permission. For more information, visit www.kidpower.org.”
  • Acknowledge Kidpower visibly and clearly at the beginning of your article wherein there is any use of Kidpower content and tell users how to reach Kidpower both internationally and through any local centers. Please have active links for anything done electronically, include a reference with a link to any specific articles used, and our logo if you use graphics. For example, AT THE BEGINNING of any article used or other material that is extensively quoted or paraphrased, please put this acknowledgement as an introductory note or byline:  “Thank you to Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International and (author’s name) for permission to use this copyrighted article. Kidpower is a global nonprofit leader in providing safety education to prevent and stop bullying, violence, and abuse. For more resources, see www.kidpower.org or contact safety@kidpower.org.

See our Locations page for specific local center service areas and contact information.]
  • Do NOT use our Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower organizational or program names or copyrighted organizational and program description language for your own marketing or fundraising because this might give a confusing impression that you are part of our organization – unless of course, you actually have developed a partnership with our organization and are receiving training and separate authorization to represent us in your area.
  • Do not keep more than two Kidpower articles at a time on your website. We have been advised that it hurts both your and our Google rankings to have too much duplicative material on our websites, so we need to limit the number you use at a time – but you can rotate them if you wish. In fact, many groups send our articles out to their constituents in their newsletters, blogs, and papers.
  • Do let us know if any of these requirements don’t work for you so we can discuss to see if you can figure out how to share our material in a way that meets both our needs.
  • Do tell us how use of our program ideas or materials have benefited your readers or the people you serve, including sharing stories and comments.

Please note that there are a few articles on Kidpower’s websites for which Kidpower has permission to publish, but for which it does not hold copyright. As these articles are not Kidpower’s property, we are unable to grant reprint permission for their use.

If you wish to use or reproduce any part of our program in any print, digital, or audio-visual form, please fill out and email us this Use and Reprint Permission Request Email, and follow the Guidelines as explained above.


Complete and email us the Use and Reprint Permission Request Email We will respond to your request by email within 3 business days of receipt with any additional questions or with explicit permission guidelines applying to your specific requested use.
