The Safer, Smarter Schools curriculum is a Kindergarten through 12th Grade personal safety and abuse prevention program developed by the Lauren’s Kids Foundation, lifelong educators, sexual violence prevention experts, developmental psychologists, and the University of Florida Lastinger Center with support and oversight from the Florida Department of Education. Throughout the curriculum lessons, students are armed with protective principles and vocabulary to express their feelings of safety and talk to a trusted adult. In Safer, Smarter Kids and Safer, Smarter Teens, students are taught to identify “safe” and “unsafe” situations, people, and secrets based on how each of these makes students feel (Safe feelings include happiness, confidence, love, security, excitement; unsafe feelings include nervousness, confusion, a sense that something is not quite right, secrecy, hurt, guilt, shame). In older grades, we address issues adolescents face in relationships with peers and adults, such as balance of power, enforcing boundaries, the grooming process, mental health, and advocating for oneself.
