We offer private trainings for families, groups of friends, Girl Scout troops, and other clubs and groups. These trainings can vary from our short-form Intro courses (1-3 hours) to our full-length Basics courses (20+ hours). We will help you design the course that is right for your group. We are able to work with all genders and ages from 6+ with these private courses. Contact us by email or complete the form below and we will help you design a program that is perfect for your group's needs!
Please note that because part of the success of our approach depends on the community support of taking the class with a group, we do not offer trainings for fewer than 8 people.
"I cannot recommend Impact Bay Area highly enough. After reading about their program, I arranged for a private class for my 6th grade son, my 3rd grade daughter, and a group of their classmates. The trainers were so fantastic. They got the kids engaged right away and kept their interest for the entire day. They covered self awareness, evaluation of risk, how to de-escalate various situations, and how to respond physically and escape if needed. They practiced using a loud voice to call attention to situations in which the kids might need help and how to get the help they need in any situation. A few parents and I sat in on part of the class at the end of the day and we were all impressed. The kids really enjoyed their day, they felt empowered by the information, and I feel much more confident sending my kids out into the neighborhood on their own. I am planning a refresher course for kids from our school next year and I highly recommend Impact to anyone who asks!" -Kate S.
"I like having my daughter attand the class once a year to help her gain a stronger voice and feel more confident in making choices. The use of the padded assailant is something that the kids will just not get anyplace else and I like her to practice to get muscle memory even though most likely she will never have an experience to use the skills taught in class. Just having the skills in her back pocket I believe makes her come off as more confident and therefore less likely to ever become a target for someone else. I will continue to arrange a private class for her each year because that is how important it is to me." -Ellen W.
