Posted December 3, 2011
Help children protect themselves from harm: the University will host a radKIDS safety education program for children on Tuesday and Thursday evenings: January 10, 12, 17, 19, and 24, in Rivers Memorial Hall from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. each day. Snow dates are January 11 and January 18. Cost for the radKIDS program is $25 per child. A full refund given once the child completes the course.
The course is a 10-hour family-centered program that emphasizes essential decision-making skills as well as physical resistance options to escape violence. Children 5-13 years of age participate in the program, ideally with their adult partners, to create a true safety partnership. The focus is also on all activities that emphasize character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.
