School Guardians will be a nationwide program to connect caring volunteer citizens with local schools to support, defend, and protect America’s children:
- Moms, dads, grandparents, and other caring citizens will Support Student Mental Health by offering guidance, mentorship, and emotional support to students who are feeling lost, depressed, and in need of someone to talk to.
- A strong school community with greater cohesion and respect for one another is possible when No Student Is Left Behind. No one will ever have to feel alone and neglected again. Students facing issues with bullying or other abuses will always have someone to turn to and receive help.
- Retirees and Veterans can volunteer to connect with students, tell stories, and offer valuable wisdom that connects the older generation with the new.
- If state and federal laws permit, veterans, off-duty law enforcement officers, and concealed-carry permit parents, who are fully vetted and able-bodied, will be able to Harden America’s Schools by offering protection at the school entrance and around campus.
We would like to see every school with a group of caring volunteers to defend and support all students. In order to address the long-overdue issue of mental health, we will institute a program of volunteer parents, grandparents, and other citizens to act as counsellors and Emotional Support Guardians. They will offer love and attention to students coping with issues affecting them in school and at home. Volunteers with a prior experience in psychology, social work, nursing are ideal, but everyone is capable and encouraged to volunteer to help these kids succeed and be happy.
The School Principal and other administrators will be in charge of selecting and connecting with volunteers found in the program, and will arrange to interview them and have appropriate vetting and background check done with local law enforcement.
Strengthen Mental Health
We must protect the mental well-being of every child in every school. Detecting early signs and offering emotional support makes a world of difference.
Cohesive Supportive Communities
A strong school community with greater cohesion and respect for one another is possible when No Student Is Left Behind.
Harden Our Schools
A good guy or gal with a gun saves the day every single day in America. We just don't hear about it from the mainstream media. America's children deserve the same protection enjoyed by government buildings, banks, and jewelry stores.
