“SOS Three Sixty, Inc. brings a thoughtful, proactive and customized approach to difficult subject matter that schools and other organizations working with vulnerable populations must address. The presentations are engaging, with a combination of best practice information and case studies for staff members to apply what they have learned. SOS ThreeSixty, Inc. spent countless hours doing background research to get to know our school enabling them to specifically tailor their presentation to each level of our school, from the veteran teacher to the most recent hire - each employee left empowered to voice concerns about behaviors and student safety issues they might observe in their daily work”

“I have been in education for more than 25 years and this Boundary Training really did hit the mark (several actually) in a short period of time. Taking this course was quite assuring and humbling regarding the exposure busy independent schools face in our daily student interactions. In 30 minutes this training creates a really healthy balance between responsibility and the privilege of working with young people – all great in my book.”
