Special Community Parent-Child Workshop for 5-12 year olds with their adults in Santa Cruz, CA 

The Aug. 7, Kidpower Parent/Child workshop is now full.

There is Still Space in the Parent/Caregiver Workshop for Adults in the same location, at 6pm on August 7:  We highly encourage parents and caregivers to attend this free workshop for adults on August 7th! Learn how to help children learn and use age-appropriate People Safety skills on an everyday basis to have safer, more positive experiences with people, including strangers, siblings, peers, neighbors, and other people they know.

August 7th 6pm - 7:30pm | Parent/Caregiver Workshop for Adults 

Another special opportunity: If you are responsible for Child Safety in your life in any capacity (parent, educator, therapist, coach, child care provider, etc.) - we have the opportunity to offer partial scholarships for adults from Santa Cruz County and the Bay Area to attend the Kidpower Skills for Child Protection Advocates Institute in Albany, CA - a 3-Day Intensive Training in Albany, CA, August 10-12.

This workshop is free thanks to a special grant from Plantronics to support workshops for our Santa Cruz community at this important time!

“Our family had fun, and we use what we learned every day!”

Protect your child from harm and gain valuable tools for building better relationships. Children together with their adults learn age-appropriate Kidpower "People Safety" skills and how to practice them as a team. We introduce skills that children can use every day to feel safer and more confident in dealing with people at home, on the playground, and out and about in the world. 

Using games, role-plays, and stories relevant to younger children, we’ll practice skills to:

  • Be and act aware and confident
  • Check with adults if anything seems unsafe
  • Move away from possible problems
  • Follow Stranger Safety rules
  • Stay safe from hurtful words
  • Use voice as a safety tool
  • Set clear boundaries
  • Make safety plans so outings are more fun
  • Say “No” or “Stop” clearly and respectfully
  • Deal with other kids poking, pushing, grabbing, etc.
  • Use safety plans if you’re lost in a store, park, or library
  • Get help from busy adults - and persist!

While this workshop is free, pre-registration is still required as there is limited space.

This workshop is not appropriate for infants or children younger than 5 years old. Please arrange child care prior to the workshop.  

While this workshop is paid for by a special grant from Plantronics, any donations are tax-deductable and greatly appreciated. We do not turn anyone away from our public workshops for lack of money.
