"Continuing the Protocol for Saving America's Youth"



Make a Plan, Make a Commitment, Make a Difference....

To address the dire state of emergency regarding juvenile crime and violence, we have created Save A Child Month, a national initiative designed to help reduce delinquency and victimization among our most disadvantaged and at-risk youth. My provisional plan can be observed and amended to meet the immediate needs of any child in any situation - no matter what: No Child Left Behind.

We chose the month of January because it marks the birthday of the man who greatly influenced the movement of human rights - Martin Luther King, Jr. Moreover, January has much more than, Dr. King to show for its significance in America's history. Most notably: January 20, 2009, Barack Obama was inaugurated as the first African-American president and the country's 44th president.

Overall, this initiative works to dismantle the pipeline to imprisonment and often premature death, and replace it with preventive supports and services children need, such as access to quality early childhood development and education services and unconditional love and unwavering attention.

Our vision with this initiative is to enable at risk children to engage in wholesome, enjoyable activities during and after school, with their peers, in safe places, and under the supervision of responsible adults. We also want to help children develop teamwork, job and leadership skills while participating in sports, games, workshops, seminars, and community service activities.

The need for effective approaches that will prevent crimes by and against at risk youth is pressing, as our youth continue to be at increasing risk for victimization and serious delinquency, with several factors playing important roles:

Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions, to pledge your support or offer ideas!

Thank you for your consideration.  We hope that you will be in agreement with this initiative.

We are a group of men & women from different churches who share the same passion to reach out to the lost. This mission is bigger than just one church, this is a Body movement & we represent UNITY in the Body of Christ.

Being from the streets before God transformed us into NEW CREATIONS (2Cor.5:17), we have been called back into those same streets in which we once roamed. Christ gave us a compassion to connect with the community by showing them that we care. We don't go out to condemn them we just go out there to love them and to show them we care and to give them hope & that hope is in Jesus the Christ.

(Address of Official)


Safeguard Atone Validate Educate last January 2012 launched Save a Child Month, an annual, international initiative designed to dismantle the pipeline that leads to juvenile delinquency, imprisonment, and premature death. The initiative endured much success and was very responsive to the needs and lifestyles of juvenile delinquents. I would like (official's office name) to endorse and promote January 2013 as Save a Child Month.

The problems of juveniles and delinquency are not bounded by race, color, or creed. I am convinced that juvenile delinquency is a problem that requires not only coordinated efforts on behalf of social service agencies and coordinated judicial agencies but also coordinated community campaigns. Safeguard Atone Validate Educate plans to link law enforcement, clergy, community leaders and educators during Save a Child Month so that juveniles involved with crime, drugs, gangs, and violence can receive the assistance they need.

I strongly encourage you to endorse and support January 2013 as Save a Child Month, and I believe that, working together, we can develop effective practices to reduce juvenile delinquency and violence and its negative effects on our communities.
