We are a group of academic professionals, psychologists, middle & high school students, and business executives who are dedicated to providing free, quality Child Abuse Prevention Education (CAPE) using modern marketing and educational techniques and technologies.
“We can stop child abuse, but we have to be able to talk about it first. Some adults might not want to talk because they think it is not going to happen to the kids around them — but to avoid it, you have to have that conversation.”
Mia Hellman Class 2022 - Porter-Gaud School Co-founder, Know Your Three
“I’ve often thought about what education I could have been given that might have stopped the horrendous child abuse that happened at my high school thirty years ago. After extensive study with victims and experts in child abuse prevention, we have developed KnowYourThree to be that education - empowering children to know what abuse is and specifically who to go to until it stops.”
Stafford Green Class 1983 - Porter-Gaud School Co-founder, Know Your Three"
