Kidpower NZ was independently evaluated in the Children and Youth Services Review, 2014, 44.
They found that our intervention uses best practices in risk-reduction and prevention, participation predicted greater increases in safety knowledge across domains, safety knowledge increases were generally maintained at both post-tests, and both students and teachers reported the program to be successful and helpful!
This success is based on the carefully developed, Skills First for Safety, strength-based, step-by-step Kidpower Positive Practice™ teaching method and approach used since 1987.
