Anti-Bullying/Violence Prevention

There have always been bullies but now its easier with the advent of technology.  We need to educate our children about the damage their words and actions can cause but that kind of education takes time because in reality, were teaching them empathy. 

This program was created to empower students after Columbine and after a student took his life after being bullied.  A teacher in the school had been training with some of the best motivational speakers in the world and offered to create a course that would give students the tools they would need to not only survive life in the 21st century but thrive. 

Throughout the semester program, students learned how to respect and honor their differences, how to build true self-esteem by accomplishment, not bullying and much more.  They built teams that rippled throughout the school decreasing bullying and discipline problems in general all while improving their grades, attendance, test scores and graduation rates.  A new, safe environment formed in the school that freed students to focus on learning rather than fear of what the school day might bring. 

As one student said, "The feeling I get when I walk into the room is one of positive energy.  It makes me feel like I belong.  Most importantly to me, I feel safe.

The newest edition of  Strategies for Success has several specific lessons about bullying - but treats the topic in an empowering manner helping the bullied to cope successfully, the bullies to improve their self esteem so they don't need to bully while giving the bystanders tools to interrupt bullying while it's taking place.

The end result is an improved overall school climate and students who have learned how to cope, how to learn, how to set goals, and how to enjoy being in school.
