Smart Steps: A Body Safety Program for Children™


Smart Steps: A Body Safety Program for Children™ is a prevention and education program that teaches elementary school-aged children that their bodies belong to them, it is okay to say "NO!" to unwanted touches from anyone, to tell a trusted adult, and abuse is never their fault. These messages of empowerment will affect these children for a lifetime, as well as their friends and siblings, and their own children one day.

Smart Steps Instructors

Instructors for the Smart Steps Program include Chaucie's Place staff and community volunteers.  Each instructor is screened, trained and coordinated by Chaucie's Place staff.  All volunteers attend a training seminar, learn to use a script developed specially for the Smart Steps Program and shadow experienced instructors until they are ready to present on their own.  If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out our volunteer application and/or contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jennifer Thompson at for more information.
