    College Bound Personal Safety

    To ensure your college experience is fun, exciting and safe, André Salvage and Associates has put together this class for young women soon to be entering or recently enrolled in college.

    With even more reported attacks occurring on college campuses, it is important, now more than ever, that young women learn the personal awareness skills to understand predatory behavior, and inform their own choices around drinking and parties. Most importantly, every young woman needs to know how to physically stop someone from harming them. There is no better way for young women to safely receive this information than this class.
