Child Safety Matters: Monique Burr Foundation’s Child Safety Matters® is a comprehensive, evidence-based curriculum for elementary school students in grades K-5. The program educates and empowers children and all relevant adults with information and strategies to prevent, recognize, and respond appropriately to bullying, cyberbullying, all types of abuse, and digital abuse dangers.

Safety Detectives: A program designed for elementary classrooms to support community mobilization efforts for child sexual abuse prevention in Broome County. We know it is an adult responsibility to protect our children, but kids need the know-how to keep their own bodies safe. Through discussion, role plays, and activities we give kids the tools they need to keep themselves safer. We empower kids to find clues/warning signs to identify “tricky” or unsafe people. Topics discussed: body ownership, privacy, boundaries, grooming & tricky adults.
