National Outreach Campaign

SAFE Campuses is inviting all 4,500 collegiate institutions in the U.S. to engage in critical conversation about their campus response to the addiction fatality epidemic, with the goal of providing educational resources to students and faculty, offering technical assistance to new and existing collegiate recovery programs, and fostering inclusive campuses for students who struggle with substance use and co-occurring mental health.

Collegiate Recovery Leadership Academy

The Collegiate Recovery Leadership Academy was created in 2018, through SAFE Project’s SAFE Campuses initiative. The goal of the Leadership Academy is to develop and cultivate future leaders from college campuses across the nation. The Leadership Academy is an academic year- long fellowship for any college student who is passionate about the intersection of collegiate recovery, leadership, and service to others. It is open to students who are in recovery, as well as recovery allies. Learn more about the Leadership Academy and apply here. *Applications will be accepted from July 1, 2019 – September 23, 2019*

National Internship Program

SAFE Project offers internships to current college students and those who have graduated within one year. The internship is designed for those who are passionate about fighting the addiction epidemic at the national level. Interns support our three key initiatives: SAFE Campuses, SAFE Communities, and SAFE Veterans; and work side-by-side with program directors, while simultaneously targeting their own professional development goals and enhancing their skills.
