Summary

Think First & Stay Safe teaches students to identify and outsmart the lures that are universally used in predatory crimes against children, most often by someone the child knows. Students learn essential personal safety skills to improve self-reliance and raise self-esteem, while being consistently reassured that most people are kind, safe and committed to their well-being.

Challenge

Every 11 minutes Child Protective Services agencies substantiated, or found strong evidence to indicate that, 57,329 children were victims of sexual abuse. One in 9 girls and 1 in 53 boys under the age of 18 experience sexual abuse or assault at the hands of an adult. 82% of all victims under 18 are female. Females ages 16-19 are 4 times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape, attempted rape, or sexual assault.

Solution

Approved by the Indiana Department of Education, the Think First & Stay Safe program strives for a balanced perspective that will preserve as much of the innocence and optimism of childhood as possible. While it is imperative to arm children with personal safety strategies, it is also essential to reassure them that most people are good and kind. Most people help others when the need arises. Students learn what constitutes healthy and respectful social relationships.

Long-Term Impact

Think First & Stay Safe has been scientifically evaluated and proven to be highly effective in educating and safeguarding children, based on the federally-mandated Principles of Effectiveness and is a nationally recognized program for child sexual abuse education. The program teaches students how to identify trusted adults, as well as how and where to reach out for help. The program emphasizes that all kids have a right to be safe, and there are laws to help keep kids safe.
