Through radKIDS training, children become empowered and learn to replace the fear, confusion, and panic or dangerous situations with confidence, personal safetyskills, and self-esteem.

National Network

Community-based organizations receive training and support from national headquarters to provide the radKIDS program as a part of their own youth work. These groups, which have safety goals compatible with those of radKIDS, include police departments, educational organizations, civic groups, fraternal organizations, citizens' groups and concerned parents.


The radKIDS Personal Empowerment Safety Education Program is a 12-hour family centered safety education program that emphasizes essential decision-making skills as well as physical resistance options to escape violence. Children from 5-12 years of age participate in the program with their adult partners to create a true safety partnership.

"There is no better investment for a community and society than to invest in their children's safety and well being. As we stand today, approximately 22% of our population is comprised of children; We can be assured they make up 100% of our future." - Stephen M. Daley
