Feedback from Parents

Recently my wife and I took our 6 year old son to our first Revved Up Kids safety class. Mr. David was the instructor. This was a fantastic experience packed with much learning, and helpful information we can take home to continue the conversation with our son. I would highly recommend this class and the Revved Up Kids organization to anyone who wants to further their knowledge and awareness of family safety. Gives you good tools to talk to your children about protecting themselves.

Revved Up Kids, Inc. is saving children's lives! I have been so privileged to work with this organization and would highly recommend them to others. Revved Up Kids teaches children and teens to recognize and protect themselves from the unsafe people in their lives. They also teach parents about the dangers of predators and about the dangers of the internet and social media. Parent and kids are completely engaged in their presentation and learn so much information about how to stay safe in a very dangerous world.

Revved Up Kids tailored a program for our Teen Girls, ages 12 to 18. It was extremely informative and most helpful for the girls to learn self defense techniques. As a Mother/Daughter organization, the moms knew the class would be beneficial but we were pleasantly surprised by the number of girls who wanted to participate and their positive feedback. We highly recommend Revved Up Kids. Every teenage girl should attend this class!
