We are a team of dedicated, caring, and trained volunteers on a mission to teach kids to recognize, prevent, and stop all forms of child abuse and bullying. We believe that knowledge is power, and it's much more difficult to be a victim when you are empowered with the knowledge and skills to help protect yourself and others from abuse. We aim to reach as many children in Albuquerque with this vital education as we can.
Since 2017, we have utilized an evidence-based, age-appropriate curriculum to present 2 free lessons per child at community/youth-serving centers, and schools. We've reached over 1,600 children in grades Kindergarten-5th with information on body safety, safe adults, types of abuse, and the importance of speaking up. The lessons are interactive and engaging for most kids, with the youngest receiving lessons from puppets!
We are looking for reliable, committed volunteers who have a passion for child abuse prevention and a comfort/playfulness with kids. We are flexible with schedules and will do all we can to make it work for both of us!
