Please take 3 minutes to watch our new Pridepower preview video:

This video shows the scope, value, and spirit of this powerful online resource.

It captures the “moment of truth” when teens and adults use positive communication, boundaries, emotional safety, and target denial skills to prevent and solve challenging relationship and personal safety problems.

Although the short Pridepower video lessons address specific topics for the LGBTQIA+ community, the issues and skills are universal – such as how to speak up respectfully and powerfully in a confrontation, how to advocate for a friend or neighbor, how to stay loving with an upset parent, how to set boundaries with a boss, how to stay safe in public, and more.

This potentially life-saving resource is available without cost online to people worldwide thanks to the generosity of our benefactor Robert Holgate, who says, “Pridepower would have helped me so much when I was growing up in a small town of 250 people – and I am so glad you have it now.”

Again, please take 3 minutes to watch the Pridepower Preview – and another 3 minutes to share with others.

Since 1989, Kidpower International has been dedicated to providing effective skills and knowledge that prepare ALL people to choose safety, kindness, respect, and hope for themselves and others – especially in hard times.

The donations of people like YOU, in ANY amount, help make it possible for us to keep reaching out to those most in need, including children, families struggling with poverty, people with disabilities, and individuals facing harmful prejudice and discrimination.

Your support powers our work – and we are grateful.

Please donate today! All gifts through December 31 will be DOUBLED by our Leadership Circle.
