ECHO's Transforming Our Communities (TOC) program is the framework through which we deliver comprehensive and evidence-based prevention education. The TOC program provides educational information about child abuse prevention and is targeted for children and youth, youth-serving organizations, and concerned adults. Our program helps to empower the voices of children, educate adults, and seeks to create a stronger and safer community for all.
Beginning in 2020, ECHO adopted the MBF Prevention Education Curriculum, developed by the Monique Burr Foundation for Children (MBF). MBF are evidence-based/evidence-informed, comprehensive prevention presentations that educate and empower children and adults with universal strategies and Safety Rules that apply to bullying, cyberbullying, digital dangers, and all types of child abuse. The curriculum is age appropriate for grades K-12 and includes presentations such as: (1) general safety & prevention, (2) social & emotional learning skills, (3) digital abuse & other digital dangers and (4) cyberbullying.
