For over 25 years, SASS has provided our Safe Kids Strong Teens (SKST) violence prevention program to keep kids safe. Join us on April 30th as we take the show out of the classroom and present it live so you can see first-hand how SKST impacts the lives of children and families in the Seacoast.

Each year, the SASS Education team works to develop new shows and programming while incorporating best practices. SASS education programs are age-appropriate, curriculum based as well as engaging, fun and friendly!
 
A full breakfast will be served and the event will also feature special guest speaker Jane Stapleton of Prevention Innovations at UNH.
 
Sponsorship opportunities are available at all levels for this event. Consider becoming a table sponsor and bring 10 guests! For more information on becoming a sponsor, please contact Development Director, Cynthia Traver at ctraver@sassnh.org.

Sky Dive New England, Lebanon ME
To Register Email: christiana@sassnh.org
 
Soaring for SASS is a unique event and not for the faint of heart! SASS has added 2 dates for participants to choose from on Saturday, April 26th or Saturday, May 31st at 10 a.m.
 
Leading up to skydiving, participants raise a jumping goal of $325 or more towards SASS’s violence prevention education program, “Safe Kids Strong Teens.” A $75 deposit is required to reserve your space on the plane ahead of time.
 
With a lack of funding for violence prevention education, fundraising events such as Soaring for SASS impact the agency greatly. SASS see’s 10,000 students every year through its education programs in the Seacoast but there is still more children that haven't had an opportunity to participate due to a lack of resources. Proceeds from this event will benefit a local child through the Safe Kids Strong Teens prevention programming.
 
Ready for blue skies? Please fill out the commitment form and follow the directions for placing your deposit. For more information about registration please contact Community Outreach Coordinator, Christiana Amesquita at 603.436.4107 or christiana@sassnh.org.

The 7th Annual 5K to Keep Kids SAFE is back! Participating in this 5K helps to raise proceeds for SASS's Safe Kids Strong Teens (SKST), violence prevention education programs. SASS Educators present SKST in classrooms throughout Rockingham and Strafford. Through SKST children learn how to set and respect good personal boundaries as well as the program focuses on personal body safety, internet safety, bullying, sexual harassment, images in the media and dating violence. Currently SKST sees 10,000 students annually however there are 40,000 school-aged children in SASS's service area. Due to a lack of funding for violence prevention education, SASS turns to the community to raise the proceeds needed to keep all these kids safe!

Walkers and runners are encouraged to participate in the 5K. T-shirts will be given out to the first 100 registrants. This event is family friendly and includes a Kids Corner with face painting, t-shirt coloring and refreshments before and after the race.
