How To Help
You can help reduce school violence in two ways: donate to help us build a free app—The Lantern—that parents and schools can use to tie a child’s behaviors to certain types of violence and to access an intervention program to meet their emotional needs and you can volunteer or you can do both.
Fact: school violence in on the increase. Nearly 100% of current school violence programs fund school police, locks, and metal detectors. 27 billion dollars is spent on preparing for a shoot out or responding to violence as it occurs. Next to nothing is being done to reduce violence before a child takes up a weapon.
Your donations will directly go to identifying children in need by paying data engineers and staff to create a free web/mobile app--The Lantern. Imagine thousands of times a day parents and school staff using the Lantern to help a child in need and be automatically connected together with that concern. Donate and you can say you helped build and deliver a real solution to school violence here in America and elsewhere globally.
We are an entirely volunteer organization needing to become a full time non-profit.
