Teaches personal safety and self-protection to preschool and grade school children using a puppet show, role-playing and a question-and-answer format in the classroom. High School student volunteers bring a message of personal safety to preschool through third grade school children in their classroom. Fun and age-appropriate puppet shows teach personal safety and self-protection. Younger students look up to the teen Puppeteers and learn how to handle a bully, trust their instincts about touching, and learn how to stand up to peer pressure and harassment of any kind.
This is a Ready to Grow (R2G) resource. Ready to Grow is a First 5 Nevada County program to connect children 0-5 with services and information that support their well-being. Organizations with programs that have this R2G tag may have additional programs of interest to families.
