SOS 4 Kids is dedicated to providing innovative and quality safety education that children and youth find engaging. Our mission is to empower them with confidence and life skills that prepare them to look after themselves, or other children, in a safe and responsible manner.
Sue Perry and Velma Ganassini co-founded SOS 4 Kids further to requests from clients and participants in their first aid and safety courses to provide quality safety programs to their children. As parents, first aid and aquatics instructors, both women understand the importance and need to educate families about injury prevention, best practices for safety and first aid. To meet the needs of children who were starting to become independent, SOS 4 Kids developed the Home Alone Safety for Kids program. This has become a very popular program for municipalities and YMCAs to offer through their community programs. The program started in Oakville and has expanded to other communities in Ontario, other provinces and even into the States thanks to a network of dedicated program delivery partners. SOS continues to offer first aid training to the workplace and general public through its sister company SOS First Aid and Safety Training. Contact us today for more information.
