EMERJ-SafeNow Sessions

We offer care-defense sessions for people of all ages throughout the lifespan. Sessions are developed in collaboration with the community and may take the form of workshops, programs or presentations. EMERJ-SafeNow offers a sliding scale for payment and scholarships, as needed by families, communities or organizations.

Sessions are usually taught in 2-3 hour modules and are generally  6-8 sessions in length depending on the needs of each community or organization. Sessions are  designed to provide skills and training to all members of the community, parents/caregivers, youth, community or organization leaders and members, so that everyone in that community is involved in promoting healthy choices and ending violence.
