I’m In Charge provides personal safety presentations with video and interactive dialogue for elementary school children in Title 1 schools. Topics covered include cyber-bullying/bullying and personal safety and is presented in the classrooms at the request of the local school districts. The program empowers students with information and tools to make the right decisions when they are home alone, on the internet or in danger. Take-home booklets that reinforce the message are printed in both English and Spanish.
In 2020, due to the pandemic, the program presentations were produced virtually and shared with schools and after-school programs. In 2020-021, 4,422 students and 33 parents were impacted by this program. Member volunteers contributed 503 hours in support of this program.
