Kidpower in Maine
My name is Bo Jespersen and I am a small construction business owner, volunteer emergency responder, PTA President, girls’ soccer coach, snowboard instructor and a proud father.
I care deeply about our community and especially about the safety and well being of our children. As I get older and learn more about kids being bullied, abused, or neglected, I want to do everything in my power to teach them the skills they need to protect themselves and to get help when they need it most.
Through volunteering for the past five years in our elementary school, I learned about the exceptional child safety programs provided by Kidpower International.
I finally found a program that models personal empowerment and effective child protection and instead of using fear to teach about danger, Kidpower makes it fun to learn to stay safe!
I knew then I wanted to have a Kidpower center right here in Maine.
After rigorous screening, I was accepted into their instructor training program in January 2018, with the plan that I will bring these services to families, schools, and organizations starting in our small town.
As of March 2018 I have already had 9 Kidpower workshops and have worked with 80 kids!
Traveling Instructors for Private Group WorkshopsKidpower instructors lead comprehensive learning experiences with skill, compassion, and humor. If you live far from a Center but want Kidpower training for a group, please email [email protected]! We look forward to exploring what arrangement could work for your group and for Kidpower.
If you are not able to organize a private group workshop, please consider traveling to an existing center for a workshop or contacting us for long-distance consultations via video conference. You might also consider starting a center in your community!
