Small Steps Bring On Big Changes
The best way to defeat the issue of bullying and the associated harm it causes is to educate, educate, and educate some more. While most of us are against bullying, not many can adequately define it or its impact. We must look at bullying directly in the eye, in all of its forms, to eradicate it. This is even more apparent in the face of acts of bullying and hate that have raised with political tensions that span the country.
NCCJ offers age appropriate anti-bullying programs for youth, and adults who support them, providing distinctions between bullying and teasing with substantial information and skill building components to make schools safer and more respectful environments. Specific tools and strategies are given for interrupting bullying behaviors and empowering each member of the school community to take action.
Partnering with area schools, NCCJ brings NCCJ Bridges to middle and high school students. This is a two-day anti-bullying, prejudice reduction, and leadership development program. Young people gain a deeper understanding of how prejudice and bias affect our lives and how we, individually and collectively, can work to make our schools and communities more accepting and inclusive for all.
