Jill Pond is the founder of Girl’s Rite and Safe Kids by Personal Body Safety Programs and is a Senior Workshop Facilitator. She is a Colorado native and mother of 2 little girls. Jill holds a BA in Communication, and is currently a Sexual Health Educator. She is a trained Sexual Health Educator through Planned Parenthood, as well as a trained facilitator of Our Whole Lives, a comprehensive sexual heath education curriculum. She teaches Growing and Changing to the 5th graders in Jefferson County, and to 4th and 5th graders in the Unitarian Church. Jill also teaches Safe
Kids classes to preschool through third grade in Jefferson County Schools.
Her decision to form Girls’ Rite came from a deep desire to empower girls through their adolescent years, years that were awkward, confusing and full of angst for her. Becoming a mother of two girls provided her with the motivation to create a program that would support girls and their families during this potentially difficult time. Fed up with the messages and role models provided by our society and media, Jill believes that the need for education and discussion is imperative for girls. As they become young adults encountering new situations, she believes they need to be sure of their decision making skills and values, values which are so easily influenced by television, movies, music and peer pressure.
Safe Kids by Personal Body Safety Programs grew from a desire to protect and empower her own kids. Kids are the most vunerable and trusting people in our population, and by educating girls, boys and their parents, Jill believes that as a community we can significantly lower the rates of childhood sexual abuse and abduction.
