National Hazing Prevention Week runs from September 23 to September 27 and was created to inform people about the dangers of the Rites of Passage.

The NMB Foundation supports NHPW as it provides a mouthpiece for schools, campuses, and organizations to come together as a community to raise awareness about the dangers of hazing.

National Hazing Prevention Week

Year round the NMB Foundation is available to speak and work with fraternities, sororities and other social groups on the dangers of hazing. To begin with the NMB Foundation educates students, teachers, parents, faculty, staff, administrator’s performing arts directors, and athletic directors. The NMB Foundation also educates student government leaders, residence hall leaders, local campus police, and others who have no idea how dangerous hazing really is. However, it is not just education, but prevention as well.

Prevent Hazing with the NMB Foundation

The ultimate goal of the NMB Foundation is prevention. Furthermore, through education, the Rite of Passage can be stopped with policy development and comprehensive prevention.

One of the biggest problems with hazing is that those involved believe it is something that always takes place. Sadly, that isn’t the case.

According to experts, hazing is a huge problem resulting in emotional and sometimes physical harm to the victims. According to the NMB Foundation, more than 1.5 million students in the United States are victims of hazing every year.

National Hazing Prevention Week has exposed the dangers of the Rites of Passage, which results in:

  • Loss of Control
