The Eagle River Youth Coalition is excited to be collaborating with Eagle County Schools and the Safe2Tell program, providing financial and marketing support. Safe2Tell provides YOUNG people a way to report any threatening behaviors or activities endangering themselves or someone they know, in a way that keeps them safe and anonymous.
The program focuses on kids and the issues they face today. This program was based on the Columbine Commission Report’s recommendation that students need a safe and anonymous way to keep lines of communication open. They realized that tragedies could be prevented if young people had a way to tell someone what they knew without fearing retaliation.
Safe2Tell wants every student to know – telling isn’t “snitching.” Telling is when you need to keep yourself or someone you know safe from threats, harmful behaviors or dangerous situations.
To make a report, call 1-877-542-7233 from anywhere, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The call is free. You may also make a web-tip at www.safe2tell.org. Remember, your identity is safe. No one will ask for your name or number. There is no caller I.D., no call tracing, no call recording and no call forwarding. We only want to hear your concern and try to help.
The anonymity of all Safe2Tell reports is protected by C.R.S. 07-197. This means the reporting party remains UNKNOWN by Colorado State Law.
Students, are you still not sure if you should use Safe2Tell? If you don’t, who will?
We need your help to improve your school and community. By calling, you can help stop a friend from committing suicide, get another student off drugs, or stop a bully from making other people miserable. If you have information about the following topics, please call.
Information Sharing is the key to prevention and intervention and is required by the State of Colorado as a result of Columbine.
