building capacity in schools and communities

Utilizing a dynamic and experiential facilitation style, we address issues that are relevant to the everyday lives of children and youth. The Safeteen Pro-D Day Program & Professional Development Training provide skills to deal with verbal violence, emotional violence, sexual assault and threats of physical violence.

The Safeteen Professional Development training programs present our highly successful skills-based violence prevention model which has been integrated into schools and communities both locally and internationally. The focus of these programs for parents and professionals, will be the acquisition of concrete skills - skills to use and to pass on to the teens we live and work with. Skills which empower us as adults and also enable our youth to cope with the verbal, emotional and physical threats that they are exposed to every single day.
