April is Child Abuse Prevention Month – and, at Kidpower, we believe EVERY day is a day we can take action to keep kids SAFE!

If you have children, know children, or care about the wellbeing of children – even children you do not know – then you have the power to help create a safer world for kids, and using and sharing our Child Protection resources can help.

You’ll find our new Safety Leadership Initiative, a free and inspiring resource created to help families, friends, colleagues, and communities discover and explore ways they can strengthen their own safety leadership skills.

You’ll also find practical tips and strategies you can use right away to learn, practice, and teach skills to help people of all ages and abilities in your life be safe from bullying and abuse – through the end of Child Abuse Prevention Month and every day, week, month, and year that follows.

Together, we CAN protect the children, teens, and other vulnerable people in our lives from harm – and empower them with knowledge and skills for taking charge of their own wellbeing.

If you have questions or need help, please let us know.
