What is MASK?
MASK (Mothers Awareness on School-age Kids) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization created in 2007 by a group of dedicated mothers who recognized the need to consistently educate families on rapidly changing issues. MASK’s mission is to educate both parents and children about the issues facing our youth and to empower children to make safe, healthy choices. MASK addresses important topics and gives parents the resources they need to communicate with and empower their children. MASK provides “teachable moments,” which can enable parents to open the dialogue on tough issues with their children. Whether a child learns by reading a real-life story or by watching a video testimonial, MASK presents examples of students who were able to turn a negative experience into a lesson from which others can learn.
