Kidpower California offers private and public workshops for children, teens, and adults of all abilities. Over 95% of our California workshops are not listed on our public schedule because they are set up by schools, parent groups, clubs, families, nonprofits, corporations, and other organizations for their own members.
We adapt our services to meet the needs of anyone expressing an authentic concern for safety and commitment to work together to address it.
In addition to providing all of Kidpower’s regular core services for children, teens, and adults of all ages and abilities, we have arranged workshops for a broad range of people in local communities in the Greater San Francisco Bay and Monterey Bay areas, such as teens dually diagnosed with severe emotional disturbance and developmental disabilities; children with mothers in substance abuse recovery; farmworker families; the Coast Guard; teens who have already been incarcerated; adults in the process of losing their vision; furniture store and technology company employees; veterans; high school gay/straight alliance groups; and over 1,500 Girl Scouts and their parents gathered on a beach.
Most of our public classes are held in Berkeley, Oakland, Palo Alto, and Santa Cruz. Each class tailors the research-supported Kidpower personal safety curriculum to specific age groups, giving your child, teen, or even yourself the most appropriate and relevant skills available. Instructors are trained through our comprehensive Kidpower Instructor Training and have years of experience in leading workshops regardless of age or abilities.
If you already know what workshop is best suited for you, the California Workshop Schedule is updated regularly with our current public workshops in the Bay Area.
