RAD for KIDS Program

RAD Kids is a comprehensive foundational safety education program for children aged 5-7 and 8-12. The program is designed to help children recognize potential hazards, and to provide them with realistic options for effective response. To this end, the course focuses on seven core areas:

Home Safety

School Safety

Out and About Safety

Vehicle Safety

Stranger Tricks (including physical defense against abduction)

Personal Safety (including good, bad and uncomfortable touching)

Self-Realizing of Personal Power

By empowering our children to make positive choices, we hope to enable them to avoid or escape the cycle of violence prevalent in our society.
