ChildBuilders is excited to launch the Stand Strong • Stay Safe Virtual Program with a series of videos designed for Elementary age students. Through these videos students will be introduced to the core concepts of the program, understand the difference between passive, aggressive, and assertive behavior, and learn a strategy to regain emotional control. If you are struggling to provide safety education to your students in a traditional way, you can use the Virtual Program to help bridge the gaps.

Virtual Program Videos

The Stand Strong • Stay Safe Virtual Program is available to trained presenters of Stand Strong • Stay safe Lower Elementary. If you need training, please see below or contact our office at

COVID-19 has changed the way we all work. Sharing workspaces was once the future of the modern workplace. Well, the future is now!

ChildBuilders, a Houston non-profit for over 40 years, is looking to share space with a company that needs space to work and grow. We have a special offer for a safe, secure, and convenient Galleria-area office. This welcoming and open floorplan is a high-quality workspace with access to a covered and gated parking garage.
