The philosophy of empowering the people through the collective act of daring to care has defined the Guardian Angels organization for over 37 years. Volunteers become trained while walking with us and doing community outreach. We protect the most vulnerable residents and respond to criminality within the confines of the law all without aid of weapons. When the victimization of ordinary people infiltrates the daily lives of citizens to a greater extent than even cops or politicians can adequately handle, the Guardian Angels stand ready to assist.
The Guardian Angels remains a volunteer-based organization made up of dedicated individuals who generously donate their time and energy to help protect communit ... ies 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 130 Guardian Angels safety patrol chapters throughout the world, with constant additions being made. And the grassroots community patrols that Curtis began also spurred the creation of neighborhood watch groups throughout the United States and around the world.
