Take 25: A Child Safety Campaign

Sep 27, 2017, 10:54 AM

Join the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) in promoting its premier child safety education campaign, Take 25. The Campaign encourages parents and guardians, educators, law-enforcement officers, and other trusted adults to take 25 minutes to talk to children about safety. NCMEC developed the Campaign seven years ago to spread awareness of the issues surrounding missing children beyond May 25th, National Missing Children’s Day. The Campaign, which spans from April 1 through June 15, encourages local organizations around the country to host safety events and distribute resources to promote adults having safety conversations with children.
