Say Something -
Anonymous Reporting System

We believe that Upstanders and Trusted Adults are critical to safer schools and youth organizations.  The Say Something-Anonymous Reporting System (ARS) teaches students how to recognize warning signs and threats of someone who may be at-risk of hurting themselves or others and to “say something” to a Trusted Adult or report anonymously using our downloadable app, telephone hotline, or website.  

Say Something-ARS teaches students three steps:

  1. Recognize Warning Signs and Threat
    Learn what warning signs and threats are and where they are likely to be found.
  2. Act Immediately; Take it Seriously
    Learn strategies to take action when warning signs and threats are observed as well as how to be an Upstander rather than a bystander.
  3. Say Something to a Trusted Adult or Submit a Tip
    Learn how to tell a trusted adult when warning signs and threats are observed as well as how to submit a tip to a Crisis Counselor using the Say Something- Anonymous Reporting System. 

The Say Something-ARS trainings and resources are flexible to use. Say Something-ARS is directly aligned with the social-emotional learning standards developed the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning.  

Additional training for district personnel is required. 

Registration is free.  Be part of the Say Something movement and register today.


Please note: the Say Something-ARS student training and resources are only available to educators and school personnel in districts or states with which Sandy Hook Promise has a partnership agreement. If you are interested in learning more about how to bring the program to your school, please email [email protected] and one of our Account Managers will contact you.  


There are five stages to the Say Something-Anonymous Reporting System cycle.  Each stage provides enough flexibility so that educators and students can implement it themselves.  All of the resources you need are available here on the Learning Center at no cost
