RadKids

What is RadKIDS?

The RadKIDS program is the largest child safety program of its kind in the nation and is providing children with hope, options, and practical skills to RECOGNIZE, AVOID, and, if necessary,  ESCAPE violence and abuse. Our advanced curriculum, based on accelerated learning theories, provides realistic safety plans and options enabling children to escape dangerous situations. Unlike many programs that show videos or tell children what to do, RadKIDS actually shares plans and strategies, while practicing realistic physical skills to escape violence.

Through RadKIDS training, children become empowered, learning to replace the fear, confusion, and panic of dangerous situations with confidence, personal safety skills and self-esteem.
Through this hands-on educational program the lives of children are being saved.

RadKIDS and the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, are dedicated to empowering parents, educators, police officers, and other child safety advocates in our communities with the "gift" of the RadKIDS program by training those interested in becoming instructors in their own communities.

RadKIDS is a non profit 501(3)(c) educational program and, thanks to the work done by the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, this vital life skills program is endorsed by the National Sheriff’s Association.  Utah County has one of the leading RadKIDS programs in the nation.  We are teaching and assisting to bring this program to the children of this county and beyond.

RadKIDS WORKS! 

Heroes as young as five years old have successfully escaped the horrible realities of abduction, bullying, dog attacks, child abuse, sexual assault and manipulation. In all these incidents, the children were able to use the tools, options, and abilities they acquired in radKIDS classes to escape their attackers and return safely to their loved ones.
