Open to all boys and girls ages 6 - 9
This fun and interactive program helps young boys and girls discover practical life skills that are simple things to remember to avoid danger. The focus of the class will be: how to say "NO"; avoiding dangerous situations; learning to set boundaries so they recognize when someone is too close; and what to do if a situation makes them feel uncomfortable. The goal is to encourage young people to "yell" when threatened and to "tell" a safe adult immediately.
Real life scenarios include answering the door, answering the phone, stranger danger, and what to do in an emergency. At the end of the class girls will take action to “break a board” to help them feel empowered! Parents are encouraged to stay.
$20 / person
