The National Association of Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE), Inc. oversees SAVE chapters across the country. SAVE was started by students in 1989 after a student was shot at an off campus party. This organization allows individual chapters, started and operated by students, to address the challenges facing their school and community. SAVE is a way for students, schools, law enforcement agencies, and others to join together to make our schools and communities safer. SAVE promotes nonviolence and safe schools and communities by educating youth and enlisting them and their parents in activities to reduce the violent behaviors that threaten our youth. Conflict management, crime prevention and service projects are key components to the program. Every student should be able to attend a school that is safe and secure, free of fear and conducive to learning.
SAVE members over 215,000 members in nearly 1900 schools and community organizations nationwide.

I've been involved with SAVE for 16 years as a chapter advisor and an advisor the National Youth Advisory Board. In that time I can say that I have been privileged to work with some of the most dedicated, creative and caring young people that anyone could hope to work with. The best thing about SAVE is that the students take the lead. They come up with the ideas for what needs to be done in their school or community and then plan and implement the activity. As adults we only need to help them figure out how to make their projects into reality. The resources and support the staff at the national SAVE office are top notch and they always respond right away and with answers to all of my questions. An absolutely superb organization!
