Billy Brings His Buddies
Billy Brings his Buddies is a personal safety initiative that teaches children ages six to seven about one of the most important safety habits—the buddy system.
Who is it for?
Educators and Parents/Guardians
What does it do?
The Billy Brings his Buddies initiative helps educators and parents teach children the valuable lesson of safety in numbers and always having another person — a buddy — accompany them when they are travelling from one place to another. Through the various activities, including a storybook and online games, children learn who can be a buddy, when to bring a buddy, and that the Buddy System is something that should be an everyday safety habit.
How does it support child safety?
When children learn and adopt this very important habit, they reduce their vulnerability to victimization, and increase their personal safety.
