Education

We believe that prevention through education is key!

We offer information and presentations to individuals, early childhood development programs, schools, home school groups, parent groups, community groups, and organizations!

Call us to discuss how we can meet your educational needs!

Child & Youth Presentations

We believe that it is important to educate children on child sexual abuse just as they receive other safety information about other areas of concerns (i.e. fire safety; staying home alone safety, pool safety etc.).  Our child and youth presentations ensure that children/youth have the knowledge and tools to recognize abuse and tell an adult if something were to happen to them.

Our child and youth presentations are aligned with the Alberta Wellness Education Framework. Our programs teach children and youth effective personal safety strategies in a fun, age-appropriate and interactive way that builds resiliency skills and reduces their likelihood of victimization in the online and offline world. Topics include body awareness, healthy friendships, healthy relationships, safe and responsible use of technology, and knowing when to seek help.

We do charge a cost recovery and travel fee for our presentations. That being said it is important to us to share these presentations with the children/youth in our communities and we are willing to accommodate any budget. Please call our Education Coordinator to discuss details.
