What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Children in the United States suffer higher rates of victimization and crime than adults. Recent research shows that over 60% of children younger than 18 years had experienced one or more victimizations in the past year. In fact, 1 in 4 children will experience some type of trauma or victimization before they reach the age of 16. Prevention education has been shown to be effective at protecting children. We strive to educate and empower children and adults with strategies to protect children from multiple types of victimization.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

MBF Prevention Education Programs are evidence-based and evidence-informed, primary prevention programs. These fun and engaging programs educate and empower students (and relevant adults) with information and strategies to prevent, recognize, and respond appropriately to bullying, cyberbullying, all types of child abuse and exploitation, human trafficking, and digital dangers. MBF’s goal is to provide schools and other partners with effective, evidence-based, trauma-informed prevention programs to educate and protect children and teens from all types of child abuse, bullying, cyberbullying, digital dangers, exploitation, and human trafficking.

MBF will expand our Prevention Education Programs nationally and internationally through sustainable growth to reach and protect more children year-over-year. We will accomplish this through the development of strategic partnerships with schools, child advocacy centers, community-based organizations, and other like-minded organizations focused on protecting children; and by keeping our suite of education programs current, relevant, and in alignment with research and best practices. Additionally, we will add programs and resources as the need arises to ensure communities and organizations have the tools they need to protect ALL children.

Through staff knowledge and expertise, and with a commitment to ongoing research/program evaluation to ensure efficacy, MBF has established itself as a leader in prevention education among schools, child advocacy centers, youth-serving organizations, and other community-based organizations. MBF ensures programs are developed using the latest research and prevention best practices, including a strong theoretical foundation: the public health and social-ecological frameworks for prevention, developmental victimology and polyvictimization research, cognitive-behavioral theory, healthy sexual development, and trauma-informed practices, with a specific focus on the developmental stages and different learning styles of children. This ensures the messages youth are receiving is accurate and effective.

The Monique Burr Foundation for Children (MBF) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1997 in remembrance of Monique Burr, a devoted child advocate. MBF Prevention Education Programs include MBF Child Safety Matters®, MBF Teen Safety Matters®, MBF Athlete Safety Matters®, and MBF After-School Safety Matters®. The programs are comprehensive, evidence-based, trauma-informed prevention programs that educate and empower children and adults with information and strategies to prevent, recognize, and respond appropriately to all types of child abuse, bullying, cyberbullying, digital dangers, exploitation, and human trafficking. MBF Programs have grown steadily year over year and to date have been delivered to over 9 million youth throughout the U.S. and across the globe. We will continue to strive to expand our program usage and reach more children with this critical personal safety information.
