“White belt doesn’t mean that you are at the bottom. You have made the step that hundreds of thousands only dream about. You, unlike those who only talk about it have conquered the first step to achieving your black belt…. Always remember that a frog too, was once just a tadpole.”
According to the National Center for the Missing, Exploited Children (NCMEC) there will be approximately 58,000 non-family abductions this year.
One out of five girls and one out of every ten boys will be sexually abused before they reach adulthood.
Most abductions are done by luring children to a vehicle rather than taking them by force.
Half are 4-11 years of age. The rest, 12 or older. 74% are girls.

Kidz'nPower is designed to teach your children that the danger is real and that there are ways of recognizing the danger signs and avoiding situations that might put them in harms way. Our mission is to raise the awareness level of children in the areas of bullying, child sexual abuse prevention and child abduction prevention. Our goal is to teach children how to respond if they are touched inappropriately, someone attempts to abduct them or they are mentally or physically abused by adults or their peers.
With the Kidsz'nPower programs we are here to help educate children in these sensitive areas so as not to produce fear but to instill confidence.
