Child Safety Matters (CSM) is a comprehensive, evidence-based curriculum for elementary school students in grades K-5/6.

A second program called Teen Safety Matters (TSM) is for middle and high school students in grades 6/7-12.

Both programs educate and empower students and all relevant adults with information and strategies to prevent, recognize, and respond appropriately to bullying, cyberbullying, all types of abuse, and digital abuse dangers.

The program was developed with schools, not for schools, to make the best use of existing resources and ensure schools have effective programs that are easy to implement.

Facilitators present an interactive lesson that includes PowerPoints, lecture, group discussion, skills-practice activities, videos, and games.

Two independent research studies have examined the effectiveness of the program with positive results for both student knowledge gains and facilitator implementation fidelity.
