From Harvey to Irma, these recent natural disasters have offered important reminders about the need to be prepared—and Save the Children has come up with a unique way to make sure kids get the message.

Less than half of American families have an emergency plan, Save the Children reports, but children can be powerful change agents in leading the movement (literally and figuratively) towards preparedness.

Supplement messages with free turnkey Prep Step lessons and send-home family resources as desired to meet the needs of your program or family.
