Shelley Roy, Coordinator with the Canadian Red Cross RespectED: Violence and Abuse Prevention Program presents a Be Safe! kit to Elyse Alguire of KOALA Place. Be Safe! is just one of the RespectED programs available in our community. The Be Safe! kit is part of a personal safety program designed for children ages 5-9 to equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to help protect themselves from sexual abuse. The kit includes everything needed to deliver the program in a positive, child-friendly and non-threatening way. “Keeping children safe is the most important thing we do as educators and parents. In order to do this, we must provide our kids with the skills they need to protect themselves from sexual abuse, as well as give them an understanding of their right to protect their own body”, says Shelley Roy. The RespectED program is supported by funding from the United Way of Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry.
