Striving to reduce sexual assault and abuse in Alaska

Personal Body Safety Video for Young Children
As adults, it’s our job to help keep kids safe. This video is a teaching aid for adults to compliment conversations with kids about body safety in a simple approachable format.
The video shares ways we can help to empower our youth with the knowledge and skills to identify an unsafe situation and know what to do if these behaviors are experienced in themselves or others.
Middle School Educational Video
Each year in the United States, an estimated 1.5 million teens are intentionally hit or physically harmed in a romantic relationship. Unhealthy and abusive relationships, in some of a child’s most important developmental years, can be a catalyst for issues such as anxiety, depression, and poor self-esteem.
In our newest video with Kenai, Parker, and Athena, they speak about common types of sexual abuse and what you can do about them. We encourage you to watch it with your teens to jumpstart conversations about healthy relationships and what it means to give consent. Also, pizza is involved!
Youth Education Presentations
We have a number of age-appropriate presentations (preschool-12th) available to be given at your child’s school. Presentations provide personal safety and sexual violence information as well as resources and skill building. STAR is very careful with the material brought into schools, utilizing information geared to the child’s age and development. All curricula are reviewed and approved by the Anchorage School District.
