Step Up 4 Kids – Videos

Step Up 4 Kids graphic logo

The Step Up 4 Kids Caring 4 Kids video series is designed to help adults understand how they can support children and families that may be facing challenging events. The videos deal with children who experience:

  1. Domestic violence, 
  2. Child abuse and neglect, 
  3. Mental health concerns; and 
  4. Childhood trauma.

An adult does not need special training to support a child and help them find additional resources they may need!

Each video does four things:

  1. They explain the hardship or adversity;
  2. They help adults learn warning signs of the hardship;
  3. They teach how the difficulty can impact a child over time; and, most importantly,
  4. How adults can help a child about whom they may be concerned.
