Our new Know the Signs video has gone viral, and so has its powerful message: Gun violence is preventable, but it’s easy to miss the warning signs of violence if you don’t know what to look for and how to intervene.
That’s why our Start With Hello program is so important: It teaches students the skills to reach out to those dealing with social isolation – who feel lonely and invisible, and may be at risk of hurting themselves or others – to help prevent violence before it happens.
This no-cost program empowers young people to reach out and create a culture of inclusion around them, and we hope you’ll join hundreds of other schools and youth organizations across the country and participate in next year’s Start With Hello Week, :
