The Stop The Bleed Coalition (“Coalition”), has just launched the STOP THE BLEED® Club program, designed to empower high school and college students to build STOP THE BLEED® programs in their communities or to assist existing programs.
Schools are some of the most active organizations in the STOP THE BLEED® campaign. A combination of widely publicized school shootings, ongoing active shooter drill training and legislative mandates have focused the need for schools and their communities to develop STOP THE BLEED® programs. Students, in particular, have expressed great interest in the STOP THE BLEED® training. They want to be prepared to act in the base of a bleeding emergency.
The program is designed to empower student leaders to help their school communities develop effective STOP THE BLEED® programs by providing resources to either start a program, or build upon an existing program. Students attending high schools, colleges and universities are eligible to apply on behalf of their schools. Clubs are designed to be student led with oversight provided by a school representative. The program is offered as a free service by the Coalition. Clubs are able to access a set tools and resources they can use to create awareness of the importance of STOP THE BLEED® within their communities and to easily organize Department of Defense approved STOP THE BLEED® training classes.
Students can apply online on this page.
