Safe Kids Program

“Today I worked with a student who realized something in her past was in fact sexual assault and I truly believe that without your presentations she may have never come to that conclusion. We genuinely need people like you to come in and educate our kids so they what is appropriate behavior and what is not. I was able to help my student tell her mother and contact the appropriate authorities before anything further could happen and for that I am thankful.”  – School teacher
