Mission Kids’ “ROAR” Program was featured on NBC10 Philadelphia News!
“The more we reinforce this, the more we’ll give kids the confidence to speak up when something like this happens,” says School Counselor, Toby Sterling.
Stephania Jimenez from NBC10 Philadelphia recently joined Mission Kids at Montgomery Elementary School for our “ROAR” Lesson in a first grade classroom.
“ROAR” is a child-centered, evidence-based education program that teaches children ages 4-8 body safety and empowers them to raise their voices to speak out against abuse. The interactive and easy to implement lesson takes about 20 minutes and is designed to be taught in a classroom or group setting. Children are encouraged to continue the conversation about body safety with their “safe grown-ups” at home. Each child is sent home equipped with a Caregiver Guide with more information to help these discussions.
“Don’t be afraid to talk to your kids,” says 1st Grade Teacher and mother, Danielle Scheer. “They have a lot to say if we just listen.”
Mission Kids is currently implementing this FREE program across Montgomery County to elementary school students in grades K-2.
