Education Outreach Program

Safe Sleep Ambassador

“Each One Teach One”

About our program

One of the primary goals of Cribs for Kids® is to emphasize the importance of Safe Sleep Education and to disseminate it effectively throughout communities. To help us achieve this goal, we developed the Safe Sleep Ambassador – Educational Outreach Program.

Our program was modeled after the literacy initiative, “Each One, Teach One.” This means that one does not have to be an “expert” to spread awareness and to educate others in their social circles or communities. Once a person learns about infant safe sleep, they can pass along their knowledge to anyone in their day-to-day life.

Any organization or individual can be a Safe Sleep Ambassador. For organizations, we ask that you disseminate the safe sleep message to your staff and clients during your daily activities. For individuals, we ask your commitment to share the infant safe sleep message with at least three people in your life such as family, friends, and community members. We ask that all of our Safe Sleep Ambassadors share their knowledge with anyone interested in promoting the health, safety, and well-being of infants.
