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. 

Adult Education & Professional Training

Wanting to know more about sexual violence and how to work with those affected by these crimes? STAR provides many different presentations to organization and agencies throughout the Anchorage bowl. Trainings focus on victim sensitivity, responding to crisis and disclosures, STAR services, and the role of a victim advocate. Trainings can be tailored to meet the needs of your organization.

Educational & Informational Booths

STAR Educators are available to host informational booths during community events, health fairs, and to present on topics of power based violence and allocated on a first come, first served basis.

If you have questions about STAR K-12 Education, community presentations or inviting us to host a table at your event,  please contact STAR's Prevention & Education Manager at (907) 276-7279 or [email protected].
