Kids in the Know (KIK) is an interactive safety education program for increasing the personal safety of children and reducing their risk of sexual victimization both online and offline. Designed for children from kindergarten to high school, it focuses on building safety competence and confidence through teaching critical problem-solving skills. The core foundation of the program is based on 7 Root Safety Strategies and 4 Root Safety Environments.
This program has been purposefully designed to create a common language to help facilitate the way we teach kids about their own personal safety. Recognizing the various stages of child development, the program allows teachers and parents to adapt the lesson plans and activities to meet the individual needs of students.
The KIK online training is designed to assist educators with successful implementation of the KIK program. Users can view the modules in the online training at their own pace to learn about:
