What is radKIDS?

radKIDS is the national leader in children's safety, with headquarters based in South Dennis, Massachussetts. radKIDS is brought to children and parents by the training and development of nationally certified instructors drawn from their own communities.

By empowering a community with certified local instructors, the radKIDS Personal Empowerment Safety Education package is not just a program but a true gift to the community.
radKIDS Curriculum topics include:

~Home, School and Vehicle Safety
~Out and About Safety
~Realistic Defense Against Abduction
~Good-Bad-Uncomfortable Touch
~Stranger Tricks (including Physical Defense against abduction)
~Self-realization of personal power

Purpose: Since it's inception in 1998, radKIDS, Inc. has been committed to providing education that enhances the ability of children and parents to utilize knowledge, skills, and power to protect themselves from violence and harm.

Making a Difference: radKIDS strengthens family, encourages physical fitness, and teaches core safety values to live by through its program. Fun, activity-based programs include lecture, safety drills, muscle memory exercises and dynamic simulation. radKIDS community based programs have been offered as after school programs, day camps, recreation programs, as well as through scouting and religious youth groups.

~125,000 children have been trained in the radKIDS personal Empowerment Safety education program.

~than 2500 community based instructors have been trained in over 45 states and Canada.

~39 children threatened with abduction used their skills and returned safely to their families.

~Hundreds of children spoke up and got the help they needed to stop the abuse.

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