Sandy Hook Promise’s no-cost Say Something program teaches middle and high school students to recognize the warning signs of someone at-risk of hurting themselves or others and how to say something to a trusted adult to get help. Each year in March, thousands of schools and youth organizations nationwide participate in Say Something Week, a national call-to-action. Join us
The Say Something program will seamlessly align with any school’s existing social-emotional learning (SEL) curriculum, instruction, and programming. Students build essential SEL competencies, including how to empathize with others and seek help when needed (relationship skills) and how to identify problems and analyze situations, as well solve problems in an ethically-responsible manner (responsible decision-making).
This proven, life-saving program is available to schools and youth organizations nationwide at no cost.
