It Takes a Village to keep kids safe

Where do kids need to be safe? Everywhere in the Community.

Who should keep them safe? Everyone in the Community.

You might think that it’s someone else’s job to keep kids in our community safe. The police. Children’s Aid. Schools. That’s true. But the best way to make this community safe for all children and youth is for the entire community to make it their job. It takes a village to raise a child. It takes a village to keep them safe. 

We all have one thing in common and that’s family. Your family members look out for you and you look out for them. That’s the spirit we need to keep children and youth safe. We’re all part of a larger family we call community. By following these steps and working together, we can make a difference in the lives of these children and youth, and our community.

This page has all the information you need to help. Through videos, PowerPoints, handouts, quizzes and more you’ll learn everything you need to know about your role in keeping kids safe. If you don’t see what you need here or if you need more detailed information, contact us
