Student frequently asked questions
Am I tattling?
Ask yourself, “Is this about me or about someone else?” Tattling or snitching involves the intentional act of trying to get someone in trouble. Telling or reporting involves sharing your concern in order to help someone who is struggling, hurt or may harm themselves or others.
Please note this video mentions suicide.
What about snitching?
We believe a healthy community looks out for one another. Reporting to Safe2Tell is not snitching, it’s advocating. A “snitch” is someone who wants to hurt, bully, get revenge, or get someone in trouble. An advocate is someone who stands up and speaks out for others who may be struggling.
What is the difference between Safe2Tell and other resources?

How can I make a difference?
Each school year during the spring, we encourage and invite rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors to apply to be a Safe2Tell student ambassador.
Our ambassadors help provide insight and feedback on the Safe2Tell program and make sure that our work stays youth-centered. This opportunity is offered through the Colorado Attorney General’s Office.
