Mission:
To collaborate with schools and communities in creating safe and inclusive environments where all youth and adults thrive.
Results:
Our programs and services reduce bullying and violence, positively affecting attendance as well as academic achievement, and help young people develop into capable, connected and contributing members of society.

A multi-year evaluation conducted in partnership with Texas State University, San Marcos and the University of Georgia, Athens, and completed in 2011 found several statistically significant outcomes:

- Increased rates of intervention in bullying incidents by male Ambassadors;

- Improved school climate among friends of Ambassadors, who also reported increased rates of intervention in bullying incidents by their peers;

- Suspension rates averaged 33% lower than pre-SSA rates at schools that implemented the program as designed, while rates at demographically matched control schools rose 10% during the same years.
