“ROAR” is a child-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 is designed to be taught in a classroom or group setting. A lion named Rex and his animal friends take children on journey to find his ROAR, a simple and memorable acronym that teaches children that their bodies are their own and empowers children to stand up against abuse.
ROAR empowers children to understand personal body safety, speak out against abuse, and identify three safe adults to go to when they feel unsafe.
This year, we’ll be offering our “ROAR” Program virtually OR in-person, at the discretion of the school district.
These lessons are needed now, more than ever. Due to school closures and stay-at-home orders throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic, students are disconnected from safe adults such as teachers, counselors, and coaches. Children who are isolated from safe adults are at a higher risk of being abused. We know now, more than ever, children need these important lessons and resources.
Please help us keep kids safe: We’re encouraging every school in Montgomery County to include this important child abuse prevention and body safety lesson for children in grades K-2 in their plans for the upcoming school year.
