1. Child Abuse Prevention Puppeteer Information
“I’m the Boss of Me” is an engaging puppet show delivered to Grade 4 classrooms in partnership with Saskatoon school divisions. This child sexual abuse prevention program tells a gentle story of four friends, two of which have experienced sexual abuse. One child discovers through her friend that sexual abuse is not her fault, that is should never be kept a secret, and that there are people who will believe and help her.
Approximately 45 puppeteers are needed between January and March each year to deliver this child sexual abuse prevention program, and recruitment begins in the fall.
This program offers excellent training for those who will work with children in their careers, and many of our puppeteers are students in education, nursing, social work, or other human service programs—but that’s not a prerequisite!
If you have a flair for the dramatic and want to help educate children about their right to bodily autonomy and their ability to say no, this opportunity may be right up your alley.
