Watch an excellent video created by Ken Tork, Outreach Director of Ed4Ed about the terrible activity known

26 minutes is to the right.
This organization is dedicated to those young people who have
been needlessly injured or killed as a result of participating in behaviors without adequate information
concerning the risks they are taking. We as a group are aware of about 1,000 such young people and the number is increasing
steadily. To prevent these senseless tragedies,
Education is the essential element:
Evaluating potential outcomes - Benefits vs, Risk
in guiding our youth to healthy choices ushering in bright futures.
Scientific research and professionals concur: Youth will
take risks. Scientific research based on youth studies conclude: Knowledge is the single factor that determines
the risks they will choose to take. Risk experimentation ends in needless tragedy and experience is not the best teacher.
Many of our members have been personally affected by these behaviors which
include but are not limited to "The Choking Game'. Emo, Dusting and Pharm Parties.
The Ed4Ed mission is to provide an aid to be shared free of cost with all who care for
youth. The single goal is elimination of youth dying and suffering grave injury due to a simple lack of knowledge. These
senseless tragedies can be prevented. This will be accomplished through awareness of and education about emerging youth
risk behavior trends.
To be effective the program must be efficient, flexible, adaptable, accessible, easy to use and offered freely.
