radKIDS safety program classes to begin in JanuaryDecember 26, 2011
SPRINGFIELD Western New England University will host a series of radKIDS safety program classes in January for children between the ages of 5 and 13.
The classes will run Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5 to 7 p.m. in the university’s Rivers Memorial Building starting Jan. 10, 2012. Registration for the program, which is open to the public, is $25 per child, with registration fees refunded upon successful completion of the course. Pre-registration is recommended as space is limited.
The radKIDS Personal Empowerment Safety Education program is a 10-hour family-centered program that emphasizes essential decision-making skills as well as physical resistance options to escape violence. Ideally, children are joined in class by a parent or other adult to create a true safety partnership.
The curriculum focuses on the ability to make safe decisions through recognizing, avoiding, and if necessary to escaping violence or harm. The program also emphasizes character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.
