Speak Up Be Safe™ is a research based child abuse & bullying prevention education curriculum that focuses on child safety.
In the time it takes you to read this message, approximately 40 children will be abused in the United States. This year, 13 million students will be bullied in the United States and 3.2 million reports of abuse or neglect on children will be made.
In 2012, for every 10,000 Illinois children, 91 were indicated cases of abuse or neglect.
Although child abuse, neglect, bullying or cyber-bullying may not personally affect you, statistics show that 25% of females and 16% of males will be abused before the age of 18... A lot of people you know are being affected, whether you know it or not.
Childhelp® is a leading national non-profit organization dedicated to helping victims of child abuse and neglect. Childhelp's approach focuses on prevention, intervention and treatment.
Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe is a research based, comprehensive primary prevention education curriculum that equips children in Grades 1-6 and their adult community with skills they need to play a significant role in the prevention or interruption of physical, emotional, sexual abuse, neglect and bullying.
With the passage of Erin's Law in Illinois, HB6193, schools are mandated to provide a comprehensive child abuse prevention education curriculum to school aged children.
Costing only $5 per child, Childhelp Speak Up, Be Safe will provide children with the knowledge to prevent or interrupt abuse, neglect and bullying.
With your donation, you will be protecting children in Illinois against this deadly violence.
