On Tuesday, October 29, 2019, we will celebrate the launch of our new online resource Care. Connect. Champion. A Middle School Bullying Prevention Toolkit. The website was created especially to help youth ages 11 through 14 share their voice and engage in bullying prevention.
Developed by the Center for Safe Schools in partnership with the Highmark Foundation, the toolkit provides easy-to-follow steps for activity planning, templates, videos, tips for building support within their school, contest ideas and more for student-led campaigns. A special section for advisors helps adults support these school and afterschool groups and provides school climate assessment tools, best practices, and resources on bullying prevention and interventions.
Rally with us on October 29 at noon in the state capitol rotunda as we take a stand for Pennsylvania’s 1.7 million students in recognition of Governor Wolf’s proclamation of October as Bullying Prevention Month.
Join the conversation. Tell us how you have seen students make a difference in each other’s lives, especially around bullying and school climate. Follow us @center_schools and share your stories about bullying using hashtag #CareConnectChampion. Your tweet will be entered to win a free registration for the 2020 National Social Emotional Learning Conference, May 18-20 in Baltimore.
