Kidz Tool Box for Personal Safety


Thank you Central Coast Funds for Children, In-N-Out Burger Foundation, San Luis Obispo County, JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery and KidGuard for your generous support of the Kidz Toolbox for Personal Safety program.

Every year we instruct over 4,000 Preschool, Kindergarten, 2nd grade and Special Needs students in San Luis Obispo County.  

Our qualified Educators teach assertiveness skills and model how to ask for help if they have a problem.  Studies show that these are key skills lacking in children at risk for abuse. The lessons varies according to the grade level, and the skills targeted for practice are developmentally appropriate. At all grade levels, children have opportunities for skill practice and transfer of learning. To learn more call  805.543.6216.
