Youth protection helpline

Kiwanis International has established 866-607-SAFE (7233), a confidential helpline to report any incident, situation or behavior that might put a youth at risk or in which someone feels unsafe. The helpline is staffed 24 hours a day through our partnership with Praesidium, one of the leading safety experts in the United States.

  • Who can use the helpline? Kiwanis members, Service Leadership Program advisors, SLP members, such as Aktion Club, Builders Club, K-Kids, Key Club and CKI, faculty advisors, parents, Kiwanis professionals in North America — or anyone who thinks a youth involved in Kiwanis is at risk.
  • When the helpline should be used. Anytime a person thinks a youth has been harmed or their safety and well-being is at risk, or when someone has reported an incident to you. Here are some examples: Complaints from youth about inappropriate or unwanted touching and/or contact; violations of Kiwanis International Youth Protection Guidelines; and reports of inappropriate conduct and actions between youths and/or youth and adults.
