COURAGE CLUB PARTNERS
Bullying happens everywhere and at every age.
While we typically think about bullying occurring in middle school and high school, bullying occurs in about 20 percent of American elementary school children.
It has become a major issue for children, parents and teachers to confront.
Teaching children that bullying isn’t just about name calling, physical threats or violence but is also about standing by and laughing or remaining silent when watching somebody else being bullied.
Our challenge is to help move children from being a bystander to an upstander.
Upstanders learn the skills to examine their own beliefs and biases, master the emotional, intellectual and behavioral skills to learn how to stand up for themselves and others.
If your school needs support in creating an environment that is inclusive and supportive, we are here to help. Through our books, lesson plans and virtual events we help teach courage, empathy, self-awareness, impulse control and social awareness skills.
- Activate Empathy through connections and compassion exercises
- Learn how to support those who are victims of bullying
- Identify what is bullying behavior including bystanders who laugh or watch
Children who participate in the Courage Club will earn a certification, books and courage gifts demonstrating that they have become Upstanders.
