We are extremely fortunate to have you as the wind beneath
our wings. Your loyal, generous support has allowed us to make
an impact in the past, and still today, despite a harsh financial
environment. Private donations are helping us to sustain operations
at youth centers and housing projects, keep chapters going in
troubled cities, and deliver school programs. With your support,
we can continue “keeping it safe” in this city and beyond. We look
forward to a wonderful evening reflecting on our accomplishments,
our growth, and our plans for a safer tomorrow.
Thank you all for being our Angels!

                                                        A native New Yorker who began his career as a radio and
                                                        TV personality, Barry Kaye joined New England Life as
                                                        an insurance agent in 1962, and proceeded to break all
                                                        the life insurance industry sales records in his first year.

                                                        He established Barry Kaye Associates, a national firm
                                                        headquartered in Los Angeles, in 1968. His innovative
                                                        uses of life insurance earned him a reputation for
                                                        creativity in the insurance field, and his outstanding
                                                        integrity and financial acumen resulted in astonishing
                                                        success in his field. He was the catalyst for last-to-die life
                                                        insurance in 1963 and in 2002 originated the concept of
                                                        life expectancy insurance policies.

Kaye is the recipient of the Man of Hope award from the City of Hope for Founders of Diabetic Research (1976),
the Menachim Begin Award for Israel Bonds (1977) and the Lifetime Achievement Award from Ben Gurion
University of the Negev (1987). Barry Kaye was also granted an honorary doctoral degree from FAU as well as
a professorship, and a senior faculty position that will provide academic leadership in the field of insurance and
financial planning.

He recently made a generous donation to enhance The Carole and Barry Kaye Performing Arts Auditorium on

                                                            NFL icon and NY Jets great Wayne Chrebet was born to
                                                            parents Paulette and Wayne Sr., a Vietnam War Purple
                                                            Heart recipient, in Garfield, New Jersey.


                                                            His football career began at Garfield High School. Mr.
                                                            Chrebet then went on to play at Hofstra University
                                                            where he was a four-year letter winner who twice led
                                                            the Flying Dutchmen, in receiving. In addition he set the
                                                            single season and career touchdown marks with 16 and
                                                            31, respectively. Also in 1994, Chrebet became Hofstra’s
                                                            first 1,000-yard receiver. Along the way he set a Hofstra
school record with 245 receiving yards in a game against Delaware, and tying Jerry Rice for the NCAA I-AA
mark with five touchdowns.


Though not drafted by any NFL team in 1995, Chrebet earned a walk on spot with the Jets. An unlikely wide
receiver at 5’10”, Chrebet worked his way up the Jets depth chart to become a clutch player. He earned the nickname
Mr. Third Down and went on to set the NFL record for most receptions by a wide receiver in his first two seasons.
Chrebet’s career history was named one of the greatest rags to riches stories in the history of professional sports
by Sports Illustrated in 2000. There are very few players that captured more hearts through their relentless work
ethic and conduct on and off the field than Wayne Chrebet. As a testament to that, his #80 jersey is ranked as the
most popular in New York Jets history and the best selling jersey of 1995.


On the field and off, Chrebet is admired for his courage, hard work, and integrity. Chrebet has received numerous
awards including New York Newsday’s “Jet of the Year,” the Dennis Byrd Award for “Most Inspirational Player,”
the New York Jets “Unsung Hero Award,” the Thurman Munson Award for outstanding efforts on and off the
field and in serving the community, and the “Ed Block Courage Award.” Chrebet also gives his time to the
Colleen Giblin Foundation, The United Way, The Boomer Esiason Foundation, The Starlight Foundation, and
the Make-A-Wish Foundation.


Mr. Chrebet and his wife, Amy, are the proud parents of two sons, Lukas Kane and Cade Jagger. They reside in
Colts Neck, New Jersey.

Curtis is a popular speaker for corporate teams, media professionals, senior executives, non-profit associations and
educators He is a member of the Board of Directors for The Children’s Miracle Network, and a guest lecturer at
colleges and universities, and an adjunct professor at St. John’s University.

The Guardian Angels’ programs and initiatives have been recognized by Presidents and Prime Ministers,
Governors, Senators and Mayors, leading businessmen, veterans groups and other associations. In 1995,
visualizing the Internet as a new target for crime, Curtis started CyberAngels, an Internet safety education
program. CyberAngels received the prestigious Points of Light Presidential Service Award in 1998.

Born and raised in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn, Curtis started his work in public service at an early age. In
1968, at the age of 14, he was a step ahead of the term “recycling;” he was already collecting and separating paper,
bottles, and cans for industrial reuse. He was President of his class while attending Brooklyn Prep. In the early
70s, as night manager of the McDonald’s at Webster and Fordham Road in the Bronx, he instituted a community
clean-up program. Local volunteers, dubbed the “Rock Brigade,” painted over graffiti, cleaned up vacant lots,
boarded up vacant buildings and planted trees and gardens.

Later that decade, determined to take back the community, reduced by drugs, crime, gangs, and arson, Curtis
expanded his neighborhood program to patrol the Number 4 train, then known as the “Mugger’s Express.” Curtis
recruited a multi-cultural, multi-racial team of volunteers (“the Magnificent 13”) who rode one of NYC’s worst
subway lines between the toughest stops in the city, making citizen’s arrest, if needed, to detain gang members and
criminals for police. Initially they encountered resistance and skepticism from both transit and local police. Soon
however, doubt was replaced with trust as Guardian Angels volunteers became role models. Out of these modest
beginnings, The Guardian Angels was born in 1979.

Curtis married wife Mary in 2003. They have one son, Anthony Chester, born in 2003.

“Ideas CAN become realities as long as you roll up your sleeves, you do the hard work, and you’re true to your
commitment and your cause.” Curtis Sliwa

                                                   “the streets to the suites.” Under her wing, The Guardian Angels
                                                   Education Team has been designated a contracted vendor for the
                                                   NYC Department of Education, opening doors to deliver student
support services to greater numbers of city schools. She has been instrumental in developing and enriching the
organizations’ web sites, realizing her vision of a Guardian Angels virtual online safety center. She created Rocky,
the beloved Angels’ mascot. Almost single-handedly, Mary organizes the annual fundraising Gala, honoring
supporters and reinforcing the Angels’ mission.

Mary draws from a rich background in education, business, marketing, and advertising, bringing her innovations,
talents, and high energy to grow The Guardian Angels and help make schools and communities safer for families
and children through education and outreach.

Mary earned degrees in Special Education, Psychology, and Elementary Education from William Paterson
College, subsequently earning Manager’s Certificates from The Sterling Institute and The Wharton School.

A media career followed, including Sales Manager at CNN/Headline News Cable, WPLJ Radio, WRKS Radio
and WPAT Radio. At WPAT Mary was instrumental in the development of the “SAY NO TO DRUGS” campaign.
She went on to assume positions for WABC News Talk Radio, Capital Cities/ABC (now Disney/ABC) in New
York. She received ABC’s Circle of Excellence Award and went on to become executive producer of her own show
at WABC Radio, “The Home Talk Show,” which became a top-rated Sunday show for WABC.

Mary joined the Angels initially as a Board member in 1996. Today, she continues to assemble a solid and
supportive Board of Trustees of varied backgrounds to help lead and guide the organization. Mary married Curtis
in 2000. Their son, Anthony Chester, was born in 2003.

Says Mary, “Our goal is to help families and children to be safe, through education and empowerment.”

                                         Safety Patrols

The Guardian Angels remains a volunteer-based organization made up of dedicated individuals who generously
donate their time and energy to help protect communities around the world. A unique feature of The Guardian
Angels approach is the group’s inclusion of inner city youth in the safety patrols. By making young people part of
the solution rather than casting them as part of the problem, The Guardian Angels empowers youth to take pride in
their communities and contribute to the safety of their neighborhoods. Over the years, Curtis and his Angels have
empowered thousands of citizens – both young and old – to take responsibility for cleaning up their communities
and safeguarding their streets.

As a result, there are now more than 140 Guardian Angels safety patrol chapters throughout the world, with constant
additions being made. And the grass roots community patrols that Curtis began also spurred the creation of
neighborhood watch groups throughout the United States and around the world.

In each safety patrol chapter, Guardian Angels volunteers safeguard streets, subways and other public areas.
From dusk until dawn, without weapons, these committed volunteers help to ensure that citizens can enjoy their
communities without fearing for their safety. The Guardian Angels attend community festivals and other large
gatherings to deter criminal elements from disrupting the celebrations.

                                                                          Guardian Angels volunteers are also on

Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, The Guardian Angels has been recognized by the national government as the
country’s first non-profit organization. Programs are offered throughout Japan, including in Tokyo, Yokohama and
Hiroshima. In addition to safety patrols in the schools and communities, The Guardian Angels offers educational
programs to teach safety techniques and provide safety training.

And recently in 2005, The African National Congress in Capetown, South Africa invited The Guardian Angels to
establish a local chapter. Over the years, The Guardian Angels has also expanded to locales such as New Zealand,
Peru, Brazil, Canada and the Philippines.

Throughout its existence, The Guardian Angels and Founder Curtis Sliwa have received awards and commendations
from Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Joining
forces with community groups like the YMCA, the National Crime Prevention Council, The United Way and
the Points of Light Foundation, The Guardian Angels’ message of hope and community empowerment has only
grown stronger.

Our educational programs are unique and powerful and equip schools with practical tools for immediate application
in the classroom and outside world. They are designed to help school staff members create safe and productive
classroom environments and instill students with the knowledge, tools, and perspective needed to help them resist
gangs and minimize bullying and cyberbullying.

Team members will also work with staff and students to establish a Guardian Angels Role Model Academy in
the school, offering an opportunity for ongoing implementation of The Guardian Angels lessons. The student
members of the academy, under the direction of a school staff member, model the leadership, civility, citizenship,
volunteerism, and kindness modeled and nurtured by all Guardian Angels youth programs.

                      Gang Awareness & Prevention

                                                    The pervasiveness of gangs throughout our society is undeniable.
                                                    They incite fear and violence, threatening our schools, our
                                                    children, and our homes. Gangs today are more sophisticated
                                                    and flagrant in their use of violence and intimidation tactics.
                                                    As they proliferate in schools and neighborhoods, they bring

                                                    hail from diverse professional backgrounds – education, law

                                                    new challenges that face our communities. At the same time,
                                                    The Guardian Angels still carry the “street cred” that is so
                                                    essential to earning the respect of young people participating
                                                    in our educational programs.

Research and experience have shown us that one-shot programs or even limited anti-gang/violence education
programs for students and staff do not initiate long term, positive change in behavior for children. Students as well
as adults need constant reinforcement as to how their words and actions will affect people around them.

Our programs attack the problem from many angles, emphasizing and reinforcing gang resistance
in school, home and community. Our initiatives include:


For Children
• School-Based Conflict Resolution Program – Peer Mediation has proven to be the most effective tool in preventing
youth violence and gang recruitment in schools. The Guardian Angels trains students to participate in mediation
and conflict resolution.

• Basic Skills Training – By teaching flexible coping strategies, problem solving skills, and interpersonal skills,
The Guardian Angels helps children to define clear options in the decision making process, rather than using
impulsive decision making.

• Peer Mentor Program – Mentors are developed and assigned to students who are at-risk and might be potential
targets for gang recruitment.

• School Pride – Establishing a sense of pride
and belonging in school through fun activities,
and allowing children to have a voice in school
policy, can make their learning experience more
authentic and meaningful. This is important
because a smaller campus sometimes loses
a school identity and school pride         of the
original parent school. This allows children
to feel capable, contributing, and connected to
the school and the community in which they
live so that they are less likely to seek outside
identification with gangs.

                                                       simply cannot be expected to concentrate on their academic
                                                       studies. Unfortunately, 160,000 children fear attending
                                                       school each day because of intimidation and humiliation
                                                       suffered at the hands of bullies, according to a recent study.
                                                       Far from being a harmless playground nuisance, bullying
                                                       causes psychological harm, self-esteem damage and other
                                                       lasting effects for victims.




                                Anti-Bullying Tactics
The Guardian Angels Academy anti-bullying sessions cover topics such as:
        • What constitutes bullying behavior and what are the effects of bullying
        • How teachers can recognize/differentiate between “kidding around” and bullying
        • Interventions for violent and at-risk students
        • Diffusing potentially dangerous encounters
        • Gang recognition (shortened version of the larger Gang Recognition module)
        • Students’ use of verbal weapons
        • Encouraging students to report bullying behavior
        • Practical ways to set the stage for a civil and tolerant classroom atmosphere
        • Practical alternatives to traditional detentions/suspensions
        • Strategies for teachers when parents and students are bullying them
        • How to build a team united to protect the entire school community from the negative effects of bullying

                                 Role Model Academy

Our Role Model Academy is a peer-led intervention program dedicated to the philosophy and ideals of The
Guardian Angels. Under the auspices of trained faculty members, the students participate in various activities that
contribute toward positive self-esteem and character building. These youngsters represent the ideals embraced by
The Guardian Angels.




“Kids Sticking Up For Kids”
This program was developed to hold out a friendly hand to children who are bullied, harassed or excluded.
Our children learn to raise the level of civility, kindness, and tolerance in our schools through their pro-active
rolemodeling. “Kids Sticking Up for Kids” becomes a reality as students are taught to be ambassadors of kindness
and to take care of each other. Students involved in the Role Model Academy also help staff members recognize the
children who are affected by negative or aggressive behavior.


Through student assemblies and small-group sessions, students learn to:
   • Understand the definition of bullying, and comprehend its impact on themselves and others
   • Achieve an increased level of empathy for each other
   • Understand that no one has the right to bully or harass them
   • Learn empowerment strategies and coping skills necessary to counteract the negative impact of bullying
   • Recognize the importance of “sticking up” for each other to deny bullies an audience
   • Learn the importance of the individual in making a change in society

                            Junior Guardian Angels




This Guardian Angels youth program provides education and youth violence prevention programs to at-risk youth
ages 4 - 15 years in a safe, supportive environment. By teaching and modeling positive alternatives to gang violence,
this program can help youth in neighborhoods riddled with drugs and gangs to turn away and focus on education,
development of life skills, and community involvement. The goal is to help youth to stay safe and choose positive,
contributing alternatives.
The program uses a variety of teaching tools—including arts and crafts projects, games, puppets, guest speakers,
trips, and workshops with community leaders, police and fire departments—all of which foster an appreciation and
respect for positive role models in the community.
The youngsters develop self-esteem through role-playing, verbal defense skills, martial arts training, and community
projects that give them a sense of purpose. Children participate through Junior Guardian Angels After-School Club
Programs, including those administered through the YMCA of Greater New York. Recent grants by the New York
City Department of Youth and Community Development have furthered delivering these life-shaping programs to
today’s youth.

                            Urban Guardian Angels
Urban Guardian Angels, for teens 12 to 16, provides an alternative to gangs and drugs through a supportive club
environment dedicated to community service and personal responsibility. This program operates throughout the New
York City Public School System, the YMCA of Greater New York, and the New York Housing Authority as well as
in other Guardian Angels chapters, such as Washington D.C., within the school system, teens are recommended by
teachers and principals.

The program focuses on those who need to improve attendance or behavior, or who face other adjustment challenges.
It also provides structured weekend recreational activities that combine fun with education and the challenges of
                                                   group dynamics. Many participants have successfully turned
                                                   away from the lure of drugs and gang life to become role models
                                                   for their peers and local community.

                                                    To date, the Urban Angels have serviced 1,200 teens and preteens
                                                    in crime and violence prevention education, as well as character-
                                                    building education. In addition, participants in these programs
                                                    have provided community service in the form of approximately
                                                    50 service-related projects linked to community safety. Thanks
                                                    to the generosity of our supporters, eight scholarships have been
                                                    awarded to our achievers!

S.A.V.E. Workshops at St. John’s University and Iona College

The Guardian Angels delivers a two-hour violence prevention workshop for educators just entering the field and
experienced classroom veterans. The workshop meets the certification requirements for the “Safe Schools Against
Violence in Education (S.A.V.E.) Act” signed into law in New York in 2000.

Through this program, available at St. John’s University and Iona College, teachers learn to recognize and prevent
violence, not just in the classroom but throughout the school environment and community. Topics covered include
identifying the warning signs and impact of bullying, the role of school staff in protecting kids, and strategies for
dealing with “at-risk” kids.

“Your knowledge of the S.A.V.E. legislation, your commitment to students’ safety, and your empathy for students
who need our care were evident to all program participants.”
                                                            Florence D. Musiello, Education Dept - Iona College

“It would certainly be in the best interests of students at other institutions should they be able to hear you and
profit from your point of view as well as from the strategies you propose to deal with (and sometimes even prevent)
school violence where it occurs.”

               The Future of The Guardian Angels

                                                    The Reality

Every day, we receive calls and letters from individuals pleading for help to overcome violence in their worlds. These
calls only confirm the increases in violence, harassment, and intimidation reported daily in newspapers and research
surveys. Bullies, predators, and gangs, in increasing numbers, are creating fear and danger in our communities. The
perpetrators lurk in schools, neighborhoods, streets, subways and the Internet.



                                                    The Dream

That all children will enjoy a safe environment in which they can rise to their full potential and develop self-esteem,
confidence and pride of accomplishment through a contribution and commitment to society.



                                                     The Goal

To motivate teachers, parents and children to create a safer, more powerful future through our programs focused on
personal safety, civic contribution, value development and cyber security. To bring violence prevention programs to
schools across America for the benefit of students, families, and teachers. To serve as a resource for training teachers
in violence prevention at institutions of higher learning.



                                                     The Plan

Through increased partnership with educational, business, cultural and religious institutions in our communities, we
will solidify and expand our pragmatic and positive role model programs. We will expand and enhance our programs
focused on personal safety, neighborhood safety, cyberspace safety and civility, with a special emphasis on overcoming
social and educational adversity. In concert with our nation’s schools, we will continue our groundbreaking work to
develop curricula illustrating and documenting the benefits of violence prevention.

Rocky the Mascot

        Rocky, the Guardian Angels’ scruffy sheepdog mascot, has
        been brought to life. Mary Sliwa, C.O.O. and Executive
        Director of The Guardian Angels, invented Rocky as a means
         of using humor and puppetry to entrance audiences of children
         and adults alike. She found using Rocky enhanced the ability
          of kids to better communicate and interact with each other,
          as well as teach verbal defense skills. Rocky’s laughter and
           antics became medicine for all who experienced the delight
           of hearing him speak. Using her special warmth and sense
            of humor, that can translate to any age group, Mary not
            only created a voice for Rocky, she created a flamboyant
             personality.

   Rocky is indeed the bad boy of The Guardian Angels. Yet, you only
   need to watch the faces of the children and Guardian Angels to
   realize how endearing the rough-talking, wise-cracking puppet can
   be to all in his company. Rocky places a smile on each face in the
   crowd. Much like Santa Claus, spreading the gift of magic, Rocky
   gets around, as he has two homes in New York, one in Hollywood,
   Florida, and one in Japan. His humor does not seem to need
   interpretation though, as his voice is universally understood. Rocky’s
   bark can be heard ‘round the globe!!!

                                       When Curtis Sliwa founded The
                                       Guardian Angels in 1979, the
                                       safety risks facing New Yorkers
                                       were daunting and obvious. Yet
                                       today our children face even
                                       greater threats in the online world
                                       - insidious because they elude
                                       detection, making them difficult
                                       to avoid. In response to citizens’
                                       calls for assistance in dealing with
                                       online threats, the Guardian Angels
                                       launched CyberAngels in 1995.

                                       When Mary Sliwa joined The Guardian Angels in 1996, she
                                       took CyberAngels under her wing, guiding its expansion
                                       and shaping the program of today. Under her vision and
                                       direction, CyberAngels debuted in Washington at the
                                       “Focus on Children: Internet Safety” summit, earning
                                       recognition from President Bill Clinton, who bestowed
                                       the 1998 Presidential Service Award on the organization.
