Make Our Schools Safe is a 501(c)(3) national non-profit organization dedicated to protecting students and teachers at school. Our mission is to empower students and staff to help create and maintain a culture of safety and vigilance in a secure school environment.
Our Make Our Schools Safe Clubs empowers students to collaborate to be empowered to create a culture of safety at their school.
Our foundation collaborates with high-level security advisors to offer survival information for protection in emergencies. We are focused on bringing these skills to schools so teachers feel confident to protect their students and themselves. Scenario based training in an active shooter situation must be as intrinsic a part of schooling as fire drills.
Born out of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre on Valentine’s Day 2018, when our founders lost their beautiful 14 year-old daughter, Alyssa Alhadeff, we are here to strengthen the weaknesses in school security. The shooting in Parkland should not have happened. We are here to take action, protecting schools so it never happens again. With passion and persistence, it can be done. Children should thrive in classrooms, not fear for their lives. The time has come to make our schools safe!
