Child Education

In response to increased demand for virtual training, we’re so excited to announce that The CARE Center’s child-based education program, ROAR, is going virtual! The program teaches children ages 4-8 to understand personal body safety, speak out against abuse, and identify adults who can help. The virtual version of ROAR is available without cost to organizations that serve youth. 

Train at Your Location

An experienced presenter will come to your school or organization to teach ROAR. The trainings usually last 30 minutes including pre- and post-tests and a coloring activity.

Due to the high demand of the program, we are only able to offer trainings within a 25 mile radius of Oklahoma City. If your group is 100 participants or larger, special accommodations may be available.

REMEMBER, PRIVATES ARE PRIVATE

OKAY TO SAY NO

ALWAYS TALK
ABOUT SECRETS

RAISE YOUR VOICE
AND TELL SOMEONE

Rex Finds His ROAR compliments the ROAR program created by The CARE Center and is the perfect tool for parents and caregivers to read at home with their children to begin a conversation about how to be safe in some tough situations.

Rex and his animal friends will teach children as young as three that their bodies are their own, they should never keep secrets that make them feel sad or scared, and to identify trusted adults they can always go to for help.

When we teach children about body safety, we empower them to protect themselves from abuse.

comments

“The kids love Rex! They think he’s so cool, and they love to ROAR! They have a lot of fun while learning the lesson, and I would recommend it to other schools because it’s important that our children have a voice and are able to keep themselves safe.”

Erin's Law

ROAR is officially endorsed by childhood sexual assault survivor, author, and speaker Erin Merryn (founder and President of Erin’s Law). Erin’s Law requires that all public schools in each state implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program which teaches:

  1. Students in grades pre-K through 12th grade, age-appropriate techniques to recognize child sexual abuse and tell a trusted adult

2. School personnel all about child sexual abuse

3. Parents & guardians the warning signs of child sexual abuse, plus needed assistance, referral or resource information to support sexually abused children and their families

Advocacy
