Permission for Including Kidpower Content for Academic Projects or Papers

Permission must be obtained using the Use and Reprint Permission Request Form and all of the guidelines below must be followed. This means that, in addition to the traditional way of citing sources in academic projects or papers, ideas from the Kidpower program and educational resources must be acknowledged at the BEGINNING of the use with active links to the www.kidpower.org website and the source itself. For example: “Ideas from the book Bullying: What Adults Need to Know and Do to Keep Kids Safe, published by Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International, are incorporated into the following paper. Kidpower is a global nonprofit leader in providing child protection education and personal safety skills to people of all ages and abilities since 1989. www.kidpower.org”

Additional Permission To Use Guidelines:

  • Articles or excerpts must be reprinted in their entirety with no copy changes without prior approval.
  • Articles must include Kidpower’s byline under the article title. Byline information includes the author’s name (as posted on our website) and the name of our organization. For example, “By Irene van der Zande, Kidpower Founder and Executive Director.” If no author is noted, please use the following generic byline: “Provided by Kidpower.org.”
  • 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.

  • 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.

Here are stories from people taking action to make young people safer with Kidpower since we launched our campaign July 1, 2011 – from every continent except Antarctica!

Thank you for permission to print the Kidpower bullying articles for all of the parents and teachers in our school. Your very practical information greatly strengthened our school safety programs. Count me in for 468 safer kids!

– School Principal

I distributed your Safety Tips in the service club newsletter for our state, reaching over 500 community leaders.

– Club President

The Kidpower Skill-A-Day activities make it easy to see how I can help my toddler and my five-year-old grow safe and strong. They’re going to need me to keep them safe for a long time, but just by using clear and consistent language — we say “Check First” and “Be Aware” a lot! — I’m helping them build skills to take care of their safety and well-being. I felt good when I saw my little one make a fence with his hands and say “Stop” calmly and clearly to another toddler trying to take his toy at the park. I taught him how to do that!

– Parent of young children

My students and I practice and use our Kidpower skills in class, at recess, at home, and in our community on a daily basis. Kidpower skills also reinforce our school’s conflict resolution programs. Students and teachers together are building an atmosphere where kids feel safer from bullying.

– Second grade public school teacher

Our staff is enthusiastic about using the Kidpower’s Fullpower Teaching Kits to teach safety in our program for teens and young adults with cognitive disabilities. Our director is arranging weekly practice sessions for staff and students to practice the skills together. More importantly, the students themselves let us know they like the program, and we can see their skills growing!

– Executive Director of a nonprofit NGO serving youth with disabilities

The Kidpower approach is giving me a practical way to help my two teenagers build skills to get around the city safely on their own. Because we’re actually reading the articles and practicing the skills, I see and hear what they can do. I worry less, and they show more confidence. I know this keeps them safer on the bus, the subway, and the sidewalk.

– Parent of teens

I was researching on the Internet last week for information on boundaries for Teens and found your web address. I was impressed by the format of the information as it was given in easily understandable principles. The impact sentences are simple and brilliant because they make the information accessible to teens. The other information I read was more global in perspective and used conceptual information that did not directly relate to experience. So the message was lost in the message, so to speak. Your message comes across loud and clear. Thank you for your great work!

– Counselor of a program teaching teens to help other teens with addictions

The fact that your information is so practical and immediately useable is makes it attractive. I am using your Safety Signs with teens and young adults with cognitive delays to help them practice how to stay safe with their friends and family, at school, and in their community.

– Transition program teacher

I made a presentation demonstrating Kidpower skills and sharing articles at a conference with 134 parents and educators responsible for the care of about 1200 young people.

– PE Teacher and Kidpower Instructor

I used the concept of safety rules to make sure my kids and their friends are safe when playing on a trampoline. I also used my own boundary setting skills to speak up with neighbor who lets his large and scary dog play in the front yard without a leash. I also referenced the Kidpower Bullying book to have a talk with my children, other parents and a teacher about cyber bullying.

– Parent of two boys and Kidpower Board member

After a man flashed a middle school girl walking past our elementary school, I used my Kidpower knowledge to talk with the principal and counselor about safety education language that was used on a TV announcement that went to the whole school, as well as wording that went out in a letter to all family members.

– Parent of a girl and a boy, Kidpower instructor ,and Safe Routes to School Coordinator

I used your Bullying book to address issues in our Girl Scout Troop.

– Mother and Girl Scout Leader

I cannot enumerate the ways that I use and discuss Kidpower daily. Both in my work with children and families in a number of professional settings, and just as an active member of several communities, I am constantly incorporating Kidpower principles and techniques into daily life. I refer people to the website on a daily basis, whether it is just friend with children or who work with children, teachers I meet… anyone who has kids in their life, which really is most people.

– Nanny, tutor, and Kidpower instructor

I regularly suggest Kidpower techniques to my kids to solve problems, who teach them to other kids.

– Parent of 2 and martial arts teacher
