Safer, Smarter Kids

Program Overview

Safer, Smarter Kids follows a developmentally appropriate sequence of instruction for elementary school students, helping children develop skills to stay safe as their world expands. At the crux of the program, children are taught how to identify the difference between safe and unsafe feelings, situations, and behaviors – and how to then access help if they are ever made to feel unsafe. Bullying Prevention, Digital Safety, Human Trafficking Prevention, and Self-esteem concepts are woven throughout lessons.
