Why Your Child Needs the Kourage Code Experience

We provide an exciting system that helps parents to awaken and empower the good conscience in their children, build more effective communication skills and stand up for what is right.


Our Sponsor Abusehurts.ca

AbuseHurts.ca has teamed with Kourage Code, to bring fresh strategies for caring parents who want to help their children, 10 and up, to develop a healthy moral compass to navigate through life.

AbuseHurts.ca Founder and CEO, Ellen Campbell observes, "We are excited to endorse the Kourage Code Program since it empowers youth to develop real courage and the ability to follow their good conscience."

Program Author

Mr. Miles shares, “as a parent myself, my focus in developing these lessons was to create a process in which parents could help their children learn powerful language, unique coping strategies and how to fix their own feelings.”

My passion has been to help youth develop their good conscience, learn powerful language and see themselves as larger than their problems. Bruce Miles, B.A., B.Ed., M.B.A. a retired high school teacher, and author, small business owner, interviewed thousands of youth and facilitated this program for many years to youth from 75 plus cultures. The original program was called Chill Power. It earned first place in the national Non- violence Now Contest in 1995 and it was endorsed by the Toronto Police Services, Canadian Safe Schools, YMCA, RCMP, Toronto Raptors, and facilitated in 4 Provinces.

What you will receive

The Kourage Code Program is a series of 21 sessions, with over 400 carefully designed Google slides featuring open ended questions and insightful imagery, which can be downloaded for free from our website www.KourageCode.com As each child comments on each question, they will become more self-confident, learn how to handle bullies, and even get along better with their siblings.

Parent Guides

Each lesson has a printed, 2 page (+ or -) parent guide that gives the parent the background for the strategic approach we are using. We suggest reading the parent guide before leading each lesson.

How To Set Up Your Group

Your group will work best with one or two adults and 3 or more participants, ages 10 and up. Most children will have a friend or two in the neighbourhood. Have your child choose some participants. Go with your child and invite the friend through their parent so they will have met you. Set up a time for your meetings, daily, - weekly- whatever fits your schedules. You may need a longer time to complete one session. Please complete each lesson before advancing. If you appreciate the program please donate to our sponsor, Abusehurts.ca.
