Schools Initiative - citizenAID™ of North America

The Prepared Schools Initiative's goal is to position lifesaving equipment in every classroom, cafeteria, and common area. Just as importantly, it gives staff the training and confidence to know how to use the contents of those kits to treat the injured.

By empowering members of your school community with simple skills, you will gain a critical mass of individuals who know how to react and treat severely injured people before EMS arrives.

Our partnership with the School Superintendents Association also allows us to match one-for-one any online training purchased. This moves us closer toward our goal of providing free training to one million teachers.


  • Through this program we’re getting treatment kits in every classroom, installing wall stations in common areas, and training our teachers and administrators to react calmly and effectively in the unlikely event of a crisis. Preparing for traumatic incidents makes everyone safer by being able to provide basic medical care while waiting for emergency responders to arrive. For only about $3 per student, we’re making every classroom in Granville schools safer.

  • By partnering with citizenAID we are able to train all 500 teachers across Crawford County, which will directly benefit each and every one of our 7,000 students.

  • I think as a school, if you want to put safety first, you have to put everything you possibly can in the hands of your people.

  • Our partnership with citizenAID solidifies our commitment to safety. While we hope they never happen, we know that preparing for crises can help the outcome. That’s why we’re not only training our teachers but also installing treatment kits throughout our campus and in our school buses. We are proud to take these important steps to do the best we can to protect the 1,000 students that walk our halls.

  • In those rare instances when we can’t prevent a crisis, basic medical treatment can make all the difference in keeping our kids safe before EMTs and paramedics arrive on the scene. That’s why we chose to partner with citizenAID. Their kits and curriculum will provide our staff with both the knowledge and tools required to make an immediate impact.

    Newark City Schools Superintendent
  • This partnership represents a huge step towards securing our students and educators. With citizenAID’s one-for-one matching program, we have an even greater opportunity to train teachers and faculty to prepare for emergencies. Our students’ and teachers’ safety are incredibly important to us and securing an exclusive strategic schools solutions partnership with citizenAID is going to help us prepare schools across the country.
