Tonight's special guest is Andrea Clemens from Florida, a child abuse survivor and the Regional Director of the Kid Safe Foundation where the mission is to protect children by preventing sexual abuse, bullying and Internet dangers. Andrea says, "I've written a book about this topic and am a survivor. I was abused by my middle school teacher, and it lasted for years. Sadly, I'm clearly not the only one." She explains, "Nearly one in ten students will experience some form of sexual misconduct by a school employee by his or her senior year – that's 4.5 million children. So much education and training is necessary to end this epidemic." Andrea is certainly playing her part. "I have been speaking about educator abuse for about 12 years now," she says. KidSafe gives children a voice and empowers them and the adults who keep them safe with education and communication skills to become the first line of defense in children's safety. The curriculum was developed by Child Safety Experts, Mental Health Professionals, Educators, Authors and Public Speakers, and was founded by two moms based on years of safety instruction and the most up-to-date research. Through Prevention Education curriculum they teach children through fun not fear how to become the first line of defense in their own safety. Their flagship program KidSafe for Kids is an 8 week in school program for children ages 4 - 5th grade. They provide public speaking engagements, Parent Seminars, Teacher Workshops and Counselor Trainings. KidSafe Foundation has taught over 40,000 children and has provided over 15,000 adults with seminar, workshops and trainings and is one of Facebook's Child Safety Experts.
