Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Green Zone

Green Zone is a tangible, measurable way to identify behavior and promote positive interaction and overall positive environment. It provides expectations on how we speak and relate to one another, as well as provides insight as to when individuals within a setting leave the zone of appropriate behavior.

The Green Zone™ is an easy concept to embrace by all who live, work, or go to school. It outlines three “zones” of behavior — green, yellow, and red — ranging from acceptable to unacceptable to encourage everyone to “stay in the Green Zone.”

Green Zone can improve school climate, enhances campus safety response, and disrupts the process of violence before it becomes an event.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization is aiming to reduce the tide of violence that has a tremendous impact on communities. We target our efforts on the reduction of aggressive behavior in schools and communities.

We believe that violence is a process and not an event. Our strategies are developed to interrupt the process of violence. We accomplish this by providing prevention and intervention information and technical assistance to communities.

Our organization is directed by a career law enforcement officer with over thirty years experience in the fields of prevention, intervention, and enforcement. He is assisted by a professional staff and board that assists in the overall mission of the center.

We have provided information and technical assistance to thirty-five states across the nation and we continue to develop strategies that we will deploy to reduce violence and aggression nationally. We have provided violence prevention training to schools, juvenile detention centers, first responders and communities. We are committed to serving our first responders safety and wellness as many of our staff and board members are retired or currently serving as first responders. We have been and remain partnered with several university's across America including Virginia Tech, Arizona State University, Christopher Newport University and Yavapai College are some examples. We have student interns that serve as ambassadors to the non-profit. This year we started a new process to train and provide conference opportunities for first responders to include law enforcement, fire, corrections, and emergency dispatchers.
