Beginning a new school year usually comes with some anxiety, but in today’s uncertain times students may need a lot more support, reassurance, and comfort before they’re ready to learn. As you prepare, it’s important to ensure that youth and young adults have the tools to make SAFE Choices. SAFE Project has created these resources to help parents prepare and their young learners succeed.
