“Even though our neighborhood seems very safe, I used to be too worried to let my kids walk to school. Cars. Strangers. Bullies. That all changed after we took a Kidpower workshop, and practiced safety skills together. Last week, as my kids were standing on the corner on their way home from school, they used their “awareness training” and saw an approaching car that was weaving about. Instead of crossing when the ‘OK to cross’ signal appeared, they waited on the sidewalk for the car to stop…and then watched as it sped right through the red light! My kids are safe because of Kidpower, and I am grateful for everyone, like you, who supports this work!!”
– Relieved mother of three from Rhode Island
