A coalition to champion Tick Juvenile Educational Defense Initiative (JEDI)-supported legislation, ensuring kids learn tick safety in schools.

OUR MISSION

The Tick JEDI Coalition's mission is to champion tick safety and prevention education in the mainstream K-12 Health Science curriculum, helping children live safer and healthier lives.

Children ages 5-14 are the most at-risk demographic for tick-borne diseases. We envision a world in which tick safety education is taught as a fundamental life skill in schools across the country.

Our coalition is an alliance of organizations, advocates, and patients to champion Tick Juvenile Educational Defense Initiative (Tick JEDI)-supported legislation in all states across the country. We share the belief that ticks are dangerous and tick education can save lives.
