A healthy school is a place where students feel accepted, appreciated, acknowledged, and cared for; a place where students and staff embrace Aevidum and have each others’ backs. Not just one day. Every day.
We believe all students and staff deserve to learn, work, and grow within healthy communities. We are committed to helping schools develop cultures of care, kindness, and advocacy through Aevidum’s “I’ve got your back” model.
We believe every school is unique and embrace that Aevidum can look different in every school. Below we have highlighted the two most common and effective ways schools typcically adopt the Aevidum initiative. We will work with your school individually to determine the best way to bring the “I’ve got your back” message to your students and staff. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any requests or questions.
