take 25logo_take25-color_hiresYou can host a TAKE 25 event right in your own community to help educate children and parents on safety. This program, offered by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, aspires to get communities across America involved and to hopefully prevent abductions.

It was created in honor of National Children’s Day to encourage parents and guardians to take 25 minutes to educate their children about safety topics. The goal is to help children make better decisions in life, set limitations on what they do, and give parents and guardians the tools they need.

Some of the topics covered are Internet, school, out and about, and at home safety. So consider taking a few moments today and read more about Take 25 and consider becoming a volunteer or hosting a program in your own neighborhood.
