Check back regularly, because sometimes the list is long, or empty, or includes options available for just a day or two. The workshops listed below are open for enrollment by the general public, within the boundaries listed for each (such as age or geographic location). Read each listing carefully, and if you’d like to learn more or sign up, follow the instructions listed. Kidpower does not oversee enrollment or registration for any of these workshops – all enrollment is managed by the organizing group.

Comments from Workshop Organizers and Participants
By organizing the Teenpower class, we were able to make this experience happen not only for our daughter but also for so many of her friends. In addition to getting individual skills, they learned skills and language for setting up safety plans with each other when they go out together.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas and online resources with educators like me. I have been an early childhood educator for 32 years and believe in developing socio-emotional skills of young children.The socio-emotional issues we tackle in the classroom are getting more and more challenging each day. And what you do makes our lives as teachers a lot easier. Thank you for what you do.

We first worked with Kidpower after a couple of concerning incidents that left our teachers, aides, and family service workers concerned for their own safety. The Fullpower adult program helped our staff learn how to protect themselves from possible danger and how to de-escalate confrontations.
