KIS: KEEPING IT SAFE
KIS is a comprehensive life skills and health education program designed to help young men recognize their roles and responsibilities around safe sex and pregnancy prevention. In addition KIS provides parenting skills, nutritional guidance, substance abuse, gang intervention and diversion, and life skills.
KIS educates and provides tools to help youth manage their own risks, seek testing, and treatment, and explore topics including sex and pregnancy myths, consequences of casual sex, negotiating safer-sex, tattooing, HIV, date rape, and sexual assault.
The program is specifically developed for young males detained in long-term facilities and/or residential placement camps. The curriculum was designed specifically for detained youth by former system users and health educators so that it is accessible, appropriate and beneficially for the youth participants.
If you are interested in bringing KIS to your facility or community school, please contact Harold Atkins at 650-225-9030.
