How to Volunteer

7 powerful ways to help us create a safer world:

1. Use Your Social Networks to Keep People Safe

Do people in your social networks worry about protecting their kids and vulnerable adults in their lives? Do they struggle with relationships, hurt feelings, and conflict? Are they being bullied or at greater risk of facing violence because of prejudice? Are they frightened because of a news story about kidnapping, abuse, or assault?

In even a few minutes a day or a week, you can share links to free safety resources that your friends, family, and colleagues can use right away to protect themselves and their loved ones. You can share by email, social media, chat – any way that works for you.

Our Issues and Resources page provides links to resources that address specific problems.

Here are some of our most popular links:

If you don’t see what you need, ask us for help – and please let us know what you’re doing! Contact us using the form below or at safety@kidpower.org.

2. Create Teaching Mini-Videos At Home

Kidpower ‘Safety Video’ Volunteers have fun making short (10-60 second) role-play videos with two or more people showing positive communication, advocacy, and safety skills ‘in action’.

We provide you with sample easy-to-follow scripts and directions about how to make the kind of videos we need. And we welcome your suggestions and ideas.

We use these videos in our live online workshops and Learning Center to provide many examples of how to use Kidpower skills to prevent and solve problems with people.

Video Volunteers also help us to show the great diversity of the many voices, bodies, ages, abilities, and lives of the people we serve worldwide.

To get started, contact us using the form below or at safety@kidpower.org.

3. Help Translate Our Resources

Volunteer translators make it possible for people who speak different languages to learn essential safety skills and strategies. Here are examples of resources that have been translated by volunteers into multiple languages, and people need these in as many languages as possible:

If you are fluent in writing and reading in a language other than English and want to be part of our Translation Team, please let us know and we will help you get started.

Please let us know what you are doing and how we can help you help us by using the form below or contacting safety@kidpower.org.

4. Help Safety Skills Go Viral on Social Media

The most common complaint we hear in Kidpower is, “WHY have I never heard of you before?! EVERYBODY needs to have these skills!”

You can help safety skills go viral by reposting, sharing, liking, commenting on, and otherwise uplifting our many Kidpower posts in social media:

You can give 5-star reviews for Kidpower on Great Nonprofits; for Kidpower International and local Kidpower centers on Facebook; and for Kidpower publications on Amazon.

We’d love to know what you are doing and any suggestions you have. Use the form below or contact us at safety@kidpower.org.

5. Organize an Online Safety Workshop

Volunteer Workshop Organizers use their planning skills to bring our services to their families and friends, schools, organizations, workplaces, faith communities, and/or neighborhoods. All of our workshops are tailored to meet the specific needs of your group.

We teach emotional safety, boundary-setting, conflict resolution, personal safety, bullying and abuse prevention, and self-defense skills for all ages, abilities, and walks of life in ways that are empowering, effective, and fun. These skills help to prevent harm – and to strengthen relationships.

People tell us how grateful they are when someone takes the lead by organizing a service they all really want and need. Whether you organize many workshops or just one, you will make a lasting impact in their lives by giving them skills they can use right away.

6. Help Raise Funds for Safety and Respect

Raising money can be easy, successful, and FUN! Our Kidpower Fundraising Volunteers play an essential role in making it possible for Kidpower to greatly increase our capacity to provide services for those most in need. No gift is too small…or too large! As part of our Kidpower Fundraising Team, we will support you every step of the way.

    • Learn and Share. Read our beautiful and inspiring Annual Report to learn about the great impact and reach of our nonprofit organization – and share this with your colleagues, neighbors, and family who might be willing to make a gift. We would be happy to send you print copies of the Annual Report if you wish.
    • Celebrate your birthday and other important milestones. Ask that people make a gift to Kidpower as their gift to you. Let your friends and family know that you want Safety for Everyone, Everywhere for your birthday this year.
    • Honor people who are important to you. Ask that gifts be made to Kidpower in memory or honor of a loved one. They can include a personal message to you in the online donation form.
    • Organize a Facebook Fundraiser to help others be safe – we will provide you with posts and tips for how to make this very successful. You can do this in just a few minutes a day!
    • Ask that Kidpower be the beneficiary of your company’s holiday/annual giving.
    • Ask your company about matching donations. Some companies give funds to organizations where their employees volunteer – or match employee gifts of time or money with a financial donation.
