ABDUCTION PREVENTION EDUCATION
As part of its mission, Nevada Child Seekers maintains a proactive stance to mitigate the causes of missing children through education in the community. We partner with the Clark County School District to have our Shout Out Loud program taught by licensed teachers in kindergarten through 2nd grades. The program targets the very young child who, studies suggest, are most vulnerable to abduction and abuse. At a minimum, this program opens the door to conversation between parents and children about awareness, special code words, buddy systems, and the right of a child to say “no.”
SHOUT OUT LOUD
“Shout Out Loud” is an abduction prevention education program designed by law enforcement, educators and Nevada Child Seekers staff for students in K-2nd grade. Tobie the bear helps younger children learn the rules of safety. NCS staff, CCSD Safe & Drug-Free Schools staff and law enforcement train school counselors and educators so they can deliver the program. Several students in Clark County were able to use the skills they learned through the program to thwart attempted abductions. More than 90 schools in Clark County have trained facilitators to deliver the program. To learn more e-mail email@example.com or call Southern Nevada (702) 458-7009, Washoe County (775) 856-6200.
NetSmartz INTERNET SAFETY
In partnership with the Las Vegas Regional Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce and most recently with the Project Safe Childhood Team made up of diverse law enforcement agencies within our community, Nevada Child Seekers has been successful in implementing this Internet Safety program for students, parents and school administrators.
Facilitators are trained by the Las Vegas Regional Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce and Nevada Child Seekers to provide the program developed by law enforcement and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. This partnership allows us to train volunteers, educators and community based programs for children such as the Clark County Parks & Recreation staff to implement the program. . Preventing exploitation and abduction as well teaching how to report are the ultimate goals. To learn more, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call (702) 458-7009.
radKIDS PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM
Introduced spring 2007, radKids Personal Empowerment Program is for students in grades K-6. As we have seen in our community and around the country the very young children are not the only targets that are preyed upon by abductors and pedophiles. radKids allows us to reach older children with personal safety at an appropriate age level which incorporates real life situations. It teaches them how to use these skills in every day situations in their lives. Upon completion each child will receive a certificate of completion, wristband, and a certificate that allows them to attend any radKIDS class in the country for review at no cost to the parent. Parents receive a family manual so they can follow their child’s progress. Nevada Child Seekers and it’s instructors have graduated over 5,200 children from this program since 2007. Clark County currently has 18 nationally certifies instructors; all of the Nevada Child Seekers staff are among those certified. For more information concerning the program, please email Carole at email@example.com or call (702) 458-7009.
FAMILY RESOURCE CENTER
Nevada Child Seekers offers the community a resource library with books, brochures and tips on various subjects. Our goal is to provide individuals with information on raising and parenting children, keeping children safe from abduction, exploitation and abuse, and referrals to other non-profits for specific services. We want our families to find whatever help they need right here at Nevada Child Seekers.
Nevada Child Seekers makes ID cards for children. Although not government-issued, the cards can be used for identification purposes.
Families of missing persons often need more than the help that law-enforcement, a private investigator or attorney can give. That is why we organized a support group so that families can interact with each other to gain support and comfort and learn from each other. Please call for more information (702) 458-7009.
