Sassafras Courses


These age-appropriate training sessions are designed for elementary girls and their female guardians.  Girls are taught to trust their instincts, recognize manipulative behaviors and how to use their voice with new physical skills to run, yell and tell in order to get the help they need. 


Discussed are the differences between secrets and surprises and how to communicate with a 911 operator, even through fear.  All of this in a class designed to feel far more like play than preparation.  Advocating for oneself, verbally and mentally, begins here.  1-5th grades.
