Project SAFE Award



Rose Brooks Center’s Project SAFE® program is a school-based violence prevention program within Jackson County, working with children by providing group support and education at schools, on-site, and during the school day – the most effective strategy to reach students. Currently, Project SAFE is in 32 schools throughout Jackson County alone!

Project SAFE’s school-based educational support groups have a positive influence on student’s academic development by providing support both socially and emotionally at the elementary, middle and high school levels. Project SAFE staff facilitate lessons that develop the skills needed for students to make positive life choices, develop healthy relationships, and build resiliency skills.

The pre-k/kindergarten program consists of weekly presentations presented by Project SAFE staff to an entire pre-K/kindergarten class focusing on emotional regulation, safety, as well as building resiliency skills. These sessions are built into the preschool/kindergarten class schedule with Project SAFE staff leading the sessions and teachers underscoring the lessons between sessions.

In September of this year, Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS) honored the Project SAFE team and program with the Community Champion award. KCPS started the Community Champion award to recognize partners/volunteers to express gratitude for sustained and extraordinary service to schools and programs in their system. During the presentation, a representative from the board shared, “With all of the tremendous work Rose Brooks has done at KCPS throughout the years, we want to acknowledge YOU. We want you to know your effortless commitment to our students does not go unnoticed and you all are the epitome of a KCPS Community Champion! Our schools cannot do it alone, and we are so grateful to have Rose Brooks as a partner!”

Please join us in congratulating the Project SAFE team for this accomplishment.
