S.A.F.E. is a 2-hour educational awareness, crime-victim prevention program - encompassing Strategies, Options, and Prevention - that provides teenaged & adult women with information that may reduce their risk of exposure to violence and introduces them to the physical aspects of self-defense.
Teaching that "90% of self-defense is awareness, risk reduction, and avoiding confrontation; and only 10% is physical"; and focusing on both mental and physical preparedness, "S.A.F.E." provides women with solid public safety-awareness information to incorporate into their every day lives.
S.A.F.E. Serves a Dual Purpose:
- To prevent crimes of sexual violence in our communities through programs of education training, focusing primarily on awareness and prevention;
- To educate women about realistic options that will help them avoid, escape and survive assaults if they do occur.
