The council worked with StandbyU Foundation and Youturn Youth Support to select participants based on Youturn referrals. The StandbyU Shield is a smart device activated when the user feels threatened with violence. Each device is programmed with the user's family, friends, and close contacts who are alerted upon activation. Pilot participants and their contacts develop plans of action for the StandbyU Shield's use.
