Illinois Masonic Foundation

Providing Student Assistance Program (SAP) training and technical assistance to Illinois Schools since 1990

The Illinois Masonic Foundation Student Assistance Program model is a school-based early intervention approach for schools to help students who are having difficulty being successful in school. We work with your school delegates to train an intervention team to help identify students with difficulties and guide them to both school and community resources for support. Training costs are covered through the IL Masonic Foundation.
