Education & Prevention

As part of our Community Outreach Initiative, Mission Kids offers various prevention programs suitable for different ages and roles.

We organize training sessions, engaging talks and presentations, and participate in fairs and community events.

Our educational programs focus on students, educators, child-serving professionals, community leaders, businesses, caregivers, and foster care families. However, we can customize presentations to suit the needs of any group or organization.

For Kids & Teens

The ROAR Program

ROAR, a child-centered education program, teaches kids aged 4-8 about body safety and encourages them to speak out against abuse.

Safe Touches

Our skilled facilitators use puppets to share evidence-based and age-appropriate information about body safety with second graders. They explain what kids can do if they ever feel unsafe or if someone they know feels that way.

Child Safety Matters

Empower children in grades three through five with safety rules and strategies to prevent, recognize, and respond to bullying, cyberbullying, the four types of child abuse, and digital dangers.

Teen Safety Matters

Empower kids in grades six through 12 with information and strategies to prevent, recognize, and respond to bullying, cyberbullying, all types of abuse, relationship abuse, digital dangers, exploitation, and human trafficking.

Mental Health Matters

For kids grades K-12, Mental Health Matters presents a trio of engaging lessons crafted to shine a light on mental well-being and its significance.

Not a Number

Designed for ages 12-18, 'Not a Number' is an interactive program preventing child trafficking. Participants learn to recognize risks, challenge stereotypes, and build support networks. It's crucial for all youth, including those with high-risk indicators, fostering resilience and informed advocacy.
