Stopping the Abuse Before It Ever Starts was founded in 2013;
The school administration decides if freshman, sophomores, juniors or seniors will take the Stopping the Abuse before It Ever Starts class. School admin decides based on class scheduling, class curriculum, and the maturity of the students. Then each year we will return to that same grade level to be sure all students have gone through the program before graduating.
Since 2013 the program has served 22,000+ students, potentially saving countless lives.
