Personal Body Safety Video

STAR believes it is an adult's responsibility to keep children safe. We also believe it is important to empower our youth with the knowledge and skills to identify an unsafe situation, and to know what to do if these behaviors are experienced in themselves or others. Our personal body safety video is designed to provide this information in a family friendly, approachable format.

Having these conversations with kids early and often can make all the difference when it comes to their safety. STAR has a number of age-appropriate presentations (preschool-12th) available to be given at your child’s school or summer camp! If you have questions about STAR K-12 Education or community presentations, please contact STAR's Prevention & Education Manager at (907) 276-7279 or [email protected].
