Stranger Smart©

Children Stranger Awareness Program Read More

This anti-abduction safety program is disguised as an entertaining and fun program to teach youngsters the tools for dealing with strangers. Children will learn the importance of recognizing situations that could put them at risk and learn how to avoid them. We're proud that community leaders and educators recommend this highly effective and proven program. Ambrose Academy is dedicated to bringing safety skills to our children and making them STRANGER SMART©.

We have made over fifty presentations to local Cub Scout and Brownies troops, area elementary schools, community centers and local events. We will be happy to bring our program to your school or organization. A field trip to our school can also be arranged. Read what educators and community leaders say about our program on our testimonial page.
