Prevention and Education Program

Prevention is without a doubt the most effective means to significantly reduce the risks of abduction, aggression or exploitation of children. We developed, in collaboration with professionals and law enforcement agencies, a unique and interactive education program:

Workshops

Our interactive personal safety workshops are designed for children and youth and teach them how to recognize and avoid potentially dangerous situations.

Our workshops are tailored to meet the developmental needs of the students and cover a variety of subjects such as trusting one’s instincts, creating safe profiles and the importance of developing healthy relationships.

Because we are convinced that it is just as important to teach children to protect themselves as it is  to read or write, the Katimavik-Hébert team reached out to the Missing Children’s Network .

It is with much enthusiasm that we recommend this organization so that all young people can develop their confidence, as well as learn to trust their instinct, stay home alone and be alert when surfing the Internet.

Their animators are dynamic and knowledgeable and captured the attention of all the students and adults present.

We loved having the Missing Children’s Network at our day camp – they were organized and well-structured. The animators were interactive, dynamic and energetic! They had age appropriate activities and information for the children. The kids were engaged and were having a great time! We will definitely have them back at our camp!

Pierrefonds Day Camps

SHINE program

SHINE is 45 to 75 minutes in duration. It is tailored for students enrolled in Grades 5 and 6, and Secondary 1. SHINE is designed to help students build a positive self-image, recognize the components of healthy and egalitarian relationships and learn to set boundaries.

For a number of years, the SPVM is able to count upon the collaboration of a choice partner: The Missing Children’s Network.  The commitment of your organization in delivering quality prevention and education program, is without a doubt, an invaluable contribution. The safety of children on the Internet is a very serious preoccupation for the SPVM. Your safety workshops help children to better understand how the virtual world works and provides them with simple and practical tools that can make a big difference in helping them stay safe.

Commander, Montreal Police Service

Just like you, I believe that prevention is an indispensable tool in helping keep children safe in today’s society. By teaching youngsters to be more vigilant both on the Internet and in other situations, this initiative spares lives and unnecessary suffering in families and society. For these reasons, this Prevention Program is deserving of all the support in the world so that we can continue to empower our children to stay safe on-and-offline.

Senator Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu

Just like the Missing Children’s Network, we are convinced that the protection of children must be a priority in our society. These safety workshops are effective tools in that regard.

We Never Stop Searching!

Yohanna Cyr was barely 18 months-old when she vanished on August 15, 1978, and Xiao Feng Lu was last seen back on April 30, 2014. He was only 8 months-old.

Yohanna and Xiao are two young toddlers who both went missing under very suspicious circumstances.

Their families have never given up hope that one day their prayers will be answered.

Hope is definitely in the air! Thank you for sharing Yohanna’s and Xiao’s photos. One click is all it takes to help bring them home!
