Our mission is to change the culture in schools that leads to violence.
It won't be easy, and it will require time and effort on everyone's part.
The solution starts with walking up to someone and simply saying hello.
No problem has ever been solved by walking out. But walking up to someone can save lives.
Walking up can be the change and hope a troubled person needs. Walking up doesn't require any special skills - just observe and listen to identify a problem. These simple steps can make the difference in someone's life:
All it takes is noticing someone who looks like they need a friend.
Start with compassion, and then just listen.
Ask if you can help or if someone else can.
Determine if this person needs more help than you can offer.
Tell a teacher, police officer or an adult immediately.
