YWCA offers self-improvement, safety program for kids next week



Published: Fri, August 8, 2014 @ 9:26 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — The YWCA of Youngstown, 25 W. Rayen Ave., will offer five days of self-empowerment and safety education for youth in pre-K through sixth grade, and a 45-minute self-defense class geared toward families.

In partnership with the New Middletown police, the YWCA will present, free of charge, a “RadKIDS” and mixed martial arts classes from 9 to 11 a.m. Monday to Aug. 15. Parents are invited to stay with their pre-K through sixth grade students to learn, as well.

RadKIDS is a nationally recognized, activity-based program that includes lectures and safety drills, and teaches physical skills that aim to resist or stop violence or harm.

A special self-defense class for families will be at 3 p.m. Thursday. This program is free and open to the public.

These programs are funded by the city of Youngstown’s Community Initiative to Reduce Violence. To register for the RadKIDS program, call Kristy at 330-746-6361.
