Teaching kids about safety without making them scared.

You can teach children to be safe without scaring them – you just need to know how. Young people are at risk of assault, abduction, and abuse even in caring families, schools, and communities. Skills and knowledge are the keys to keeping kids safe. The ALICE elementary school program provides simple and effective ways of teaching children how to protect themselves that will work most of the time.

ALICE Training for elementary schools is designed to prepare children for unsafe situations in comfortable, colorful language that takes their youth into consideration. We provide age-appropriate active shooter training for elementary schools, with experts and stories that are sure to build necessary skills in students by speaking their language.
