Set-up an Escape Alive® class in your area

 

EA1- The Basics and EACS1- Safety for ME! classes: The main goal of the East Coast Training Systems™ and Jane Doe No More™ partnership is to teach as many women and children as possible the techniques and concepts that can prevent becoming a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, and predatory behavior. If you are interested in making a difference consider organizing an Escape Alive Survival Skills class in partnership with Jane Doe No More for your community, business, school, or organization. Classes can be private or open to the public, it is the organizer’s choice. Most of the Escape Alive classes listed on this site are open to the general public thanks to our partnership with Jane Doe No More. Standard class sizes for these classes is 50 or 100, but more can be accommodated on a per class basis.

  • Class size thresholds are typically 50 or 100

  • All specifics are addressed by Jane Doe No More

  • You must have a space to run the program. This can be a space in your facility that will be adequate or an outside facility that you can have access to. The cost of the facility is the responsibility of the class organizer, although many facilities are willing to donate the space for the program.

  • All participants must be 16 yrs and older for adult classes (Participants under 18yrs must have parental consent), 12 yrs and older for mother/daughter classes, and 8-11 yrs old for Safety for ME!.

Setting up a private class other than EA1 and EACS1: Private classes, other than our EA1- The Basics and EACS1- Safety for ME! classes, can provide a greater level of comfort and support within your group, as well as address specific issues. In order to set-up a private Escape Alive class the following requirements must be met:

  • Your class can be any size

  • A deposit is needed to reserve a class

  • You must have a space to run the program. This can be a space in your facility that will be adequate or an outside facility that you can have access to. The cost of the facility is the responsibility of the class organizer, although many facilities are willing to donate the space for the program.

  • Participant ages vary depending on the class. In most instances participants must be 16 yrs and older for adult classes (Participants under 18 yrs must have parental consent).

Escape Alive- Academic Guardian Initiative: The Academic Guardian Initiative ™ is part of our Escape Alive series of programs. Throughout our time teaching Escape Alive to individuals there have tragically been many school attacks and shootings. As teachers participated in our program they voiced their concerns about safety in their schools. The "lock down" and "hide in place" drills at their schools left them with little direction and no options on what to do if they came face to face with a threat! In 2013 FEMA prepared a report for the US Department of Education named "GUIDE FOR DEVELOPING HIGH-QUALITY SCHOOL EMERGENCY OPERATIONS PLANS" (https://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/documents/33599). The report includes guidelines for planning, creating, implementing, and maintaining Emergency Operations Plans (EOP) for schools for a number of emergencies that can occur. Read more...

Women learn awareness, recognition, avoidance, and how to defend themselves with the least risk of injury. If your job is security or combat based there is a whole set of new rules, new challenges, and new risks. No matter what your situation is we want you to return home to your family every night. That is our goal!
