The Person Safety Awareness Program for ChildrenThe Personal Safety Awareness Program was introduced in Reno County Schools in 1984 and has since been presented to more than 75 public and parochial school districts in Kansas.

Nationally the program has been purchased by Vermont's Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations - office of the Chittenden County State's Attorney and Tenessee's Robertson Child Advocacy Center in Springfield, TN.

This sensitive, comprehensive program teaches children in a positive, non-threatening way the information they need to protect themselves from sexual assault.

The curriculum is presented in four one-hour sessions over a two-week period. The classroom teacher is the primary presenter and resource speakers from law enforcement and social service agencies provide additional classroom information.

The primary goals of the program are to teach
2nd and 4th grade children...

 skills to protect themselves
 the importance of reporting if a situation would occur.

The Personal Safety Awareness Program sells
an educational video, "Be Alert, Don't Get Hurt"
for elementary grades 1st - 4th. The cost is $149.00.
Please call Horizons Mental Health Center to order
