Student Safety:Women in High School & College

Student Safety: Women in High School & College

  • pred-drugsYour daughter is  high school or off to college very soon. She may already be in college. Have you provided her with the knowledge and skills that she needs to avoid crime, especially assault and violent crime?
  • The Department of Justice states that for every ten thousand women on a campus, about 350 will be the victim of a sexual assault per year. Over 13% of women in college state they have been stalked and most by someone they knew.
  • The most vulnerable years in a woman’s life are her time spent in college.
  • Give your daughter the tools and skills she needs to maximize her personal safety as she leaves home and navigates her world alone for the first time.

Audience

Young women in high school preparing to go to, or already in college.

Format

We no longer offer our long-standing open for registration on-site class in the Seattle area.

Due however, to ongoing and widespread demand, we now offer our Skype Safety Briefings for parent and their daughters, privately or in small groups.

This is a safety discussion that is highly interactive and addresses the specific concerns of young women and their parents.

Contact us to set up a Skype Safety Briefing at info@personalsafetygroup.com or 206.734.4681    Skype: personalsafety21

Duration: Briefings run 90-120 minutes depending on the content requested. Duration does not affect pricing. These discussions find their “natural end points” and per billing, the “clock is not running.”
