Here’s how to start planning your own!

Contact us – we’ll be happy to brainstorm together! To get started on your own, think about who you want to join your workshop. Will it be for kids with their adults? Or, for educators or service providers? Are you thinking of a team of co-workers who want to be safer at work? Or, parents concerned about bullying or abuse prevention?

The boxes below list different types of participants. Click them to learn more about options and costs. Please do not let concern about money be the thing that stops you from reaching out! Contact us, and we will explore possibilities together!

Consider starting with the Kidpower Child Protection Training course, the Adapting to Learning Differences course, or the Safety Powers Course, which is free to adults everywhere thanks to generous funding from Ability Central.
  • Register for one of our upcoming Community Workshops open for public registration. Individual adults can sign up for Fullpower and Parentpower programs, and you are likely to find options addressing topics of interest to you as you parent, teach, or guide others.

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.

― Jocelynn Summers
Pre-K Teacher, The Tobin School in Natick, MA

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.
