The Monique Burr Foundation for Children’s core mission is to protect children. Research shows that 95 percent of abuse is preventable through education. The foundation created MBF Prevention Education Programs: MBF Child Safety Matters®, MBF Teen Safety Matters® and MBF Athlete Safety Matters™, a series of primary prevention education programs for children and youth in grades K-8.

The foundation’s evidence-based/evidence-informed programs are practical and were created in consultation with national experts in the prevention and education fields. They address the most common types of victimization experienced by children and teens, including bullying, cyberbullying, child abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, and neglect), relationship abuse, exploitation, and digital dangers.
