Billy Brings his Buddies is a personal safety program designed for Grade 1 students that helps both educators and parents teach children about the Buddy System.

Research shows that children who go places alone are at a greater risk of being harmed. The Canadian Centre for Child Protection’s education program, Kids in the Know, has created the Billy Brings his Buddies program to help children increase their safety by teaching them the important habit of staying with a buddy when going places.

The Billy Brings his Buddies program includes:

  • a lesson plan for teachers
  • a video storybook
  • in-class games and activities
  • at-home games and activities for children to complete with their parents/guardians
