The "I Love U Guys" Foundation has changed the way schools and organizations do their business. And it's not just about safety. We're investing in programs across the spectrum of school climate, culture, response, recovery and the aftermath. There is certainly opportunity to underwrite an existing program. Program Underwriting is an important part of the Foundation's commitment to evaluate and evolve our materials.
Initiative Research and Development is our future.
Funding a new initiative gives partners "Grandfather" status. All materials, programs, curriculum resulting from the initial Research and Development acknowledge the contribution.
Yesterday Is Gone.
Tomorrow Has Not Yet Come.
We Have Only Today.
Let Us Begin.
They day we lost Emily at Platte Canyon High School, every student, every teacher, every staff member was affected.
But it doesn't end there. Every sibling, every parent, every aunt, uncle and grandparent was affected.
There's more. Every Cop, Firefighter, EMT, Paramedic... Even dispatchers were affected.
Communities are impacted by these events.But often folks marginalize their own experiences.
What if I told you we can stop school attacks? There’s research that shows us how. There are programs giving us the path. And, BOLD people and organizations are working collectively to get it done.
The Foundation has been working with organizations locally, statewide and nationally to advance school safety.
BOLD isn't an acronym. It's an Assertion.
The power of youth is the common wealth for the entire world. The faces of young people are the faces of our past, our present and our future. No segment in the society can match with the power, idealism, enthusiasm and courage of the young people.
Project UNITE provides a step-by-step guide for implementing best practices for violence prevention in K-12 schools, using federal recommendations and community policing strategies. The key components of Project UNITE are:
Together, these components create an integrated system for identifying, evaluating, and supporting students and others who are struggling due to adverse childhood experiences or other life challenges that, left unattended, may result in self-harm or violence toward others. The guide provides training and resources for school-communities that vary in size, composition, and geographic setting (e.g., rural, urban, suburban).
Violence prevention starts with the creation of a Multidisciplinary School Safety Team with representatives from different viewpoints and experiences.
To restore and protect the joy of youth through educational programs and positive actions in collaboration with families, schools, communities, organizations and government entities.
