We have specialized in providing campus safety training for thousands of students, parents, teachers, staff and administrators across California.

The four keys taught in this program are an integral part in confronting and preventing bullying behavior. An individual embodying these four keys will not only refrain from being a bully themselves, but will also learn to report what's recognized as bullying behavior to an appropriate, trusted person to take action.

The #1 complaint that I had from parents was the bullying issue, so we brought on Get Safe and it's been the most amazing experience! As a principal, I felt such value in providing these tools for my students, and boy did they love it! I think what makes this program really special is that the kids feel empowered when they are dealing with a conflict or a problem, giving them the tools to now know what to do!
