Teach people the skills needed to be emotionally and physically safe with others and with themselves. This includes skills such as -
Instead of using fear to teach children to be safe, our programs are fun and empowering. We teach young people verbal and physical safety skills to reduce their risk of emotional and sexual abuse, bullying, assault and abduction. Kids learn to use their voices to speak up about safety concerns and get help from trusted adults.
Child abuse statistics are tragic. Kidpower represents hope. We have trained over 66,000 people nationwide since 1993. The Police Youth Education Service recognises how effective our innovative approach is and recommends our bullying/violence prevention training to schools. We also equip parents/teachers/other caring adults with a common language/set of experiences to foster healthy relationship skills in the children under their care.

This year we celebrated reaching our 28,000th New Zealander attending one of our Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower workshops. This means in 2102 we are on target to hit the figure of 30,000 people who are safer and better equipped to cope with whatever life throws at them using their Kidpower skills. We find this incredibly exciting and hope you do to!! We would really appreciate your help to ensure that we can continue to teach people the skills and knowledge they need to be safe, by giving a donation, big or small. It will ensure we uphold our policy of never turning anyone away through an inability to pay and enable us to reach the most vulnerable people in our society. Thanks Fiona
