PROGRAMS FOR SCHOOLS
Play It Safe! Child Safety Proram Sponsored by Hill Country Children’s Advocacy Center
This child safety program is geared to elementary age students and is taught by well trained and dedicated community volunteers. We hope to teach the children rules that may help them in difficult situations. The children are taught that it doesn’t matter what a person looks like, but what they ask you to do that matters. We know that many child predators are not strangers but live in the home or neighborhood.
