What Is N.O.L.A.N.©?
"Through education and awareness, we seek to put an end to hazing and to empower you to make the difference between life and death."
The mission of NMB Foundation is to assist young adults in recognizing and preventing the dangers associated with hazing. We utilize local schools and parent-teacher organizations through education and awareness to promote a full and honest conversation to provide solutions to help young adults combat hazing.
Our vision is to teach young adults how to understand and identify the behaviors of hazing. We encourage leadership and the importance of not being an inactive bystander. We want others to understand the life-long legal, moral and financial consequences of participating in hazing. Provided this knowledge, we hope to empower young adults to overcome reluctance to report incidents and to utilize CPR and basic medical assistance to save a life.
How it works?
Notice the behaviors of those around you as abusive and inappropriate. These actions can be both physically and emotionally damaging.
Obey the buddy system and be with a trusted friend. Always have someone to look out for your wellbeing and vice versa.
Lead the change and create positive outcomes. Step up and be the leader if there is none. Do not follow the crowd and assume someone else is taking charge and keeping people safe.
Act in a timely manner to avoid danger for yourself and others. Time may be vital with someone’s life at risk as each minute passes. Know CPR and general First Aid.
Notify someone immediately of the situation. Get help now and call 911. Reach out to a family member, fellow student, or an authority figure. Tell someone and call 911. Having a family plan in place is recommended.
