Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) Promise Club is the student leadership initiative of Sandy Hook Promise. Led by our Youth Advisory Board, the aim is to empower student leaders to take an active role in increasing school safety and preventing different forms of violence in schools and communities.
Students want safe schools and communities and want to lead the change in these efforts. Many young people suffer silently because they feel alone or invisible. Those who are isolated can become victims of bullying, violence, or depression. Some may pull further away from society, struggle with learning and social development, and even choose to hurt themselves or others.
Student-led SAVE Promise Clubs offer a powerful approach to preventing violence because they recognize the unique role that young people play in making their schools and communities safer. A SAVE Promise Club can be a stand-alone club or embedded into an existing club, such as SADD, Student Council, FCCLA, or another student leadership, civic, or kindness club. Many SAVE Promise Clubs are successful meeting only once or twice a month and organizing four activities throughout the year.
