3/4 –Helping Everyone Live Peacefully: Teasing and Bullying Curriculum
This session is being offered as part of PASE Presents! - a program designed to showcase curricula, research, effective practices and new trainings relevant to the afterschool field.
Are you interested in learning about a free teasing and bullying curriculum geared toward elementary and middle school youth?
The Stanley M. Isaacs Neighborhood Center has developed the Helping Everyone Live Peacefully (H.E.L.P.) curriculum for use by group leaders working with students ages 5-14. The goal of the curriculum is to build a climate that empowers students to take action and responsibility around bullying and teasing. Using role-play, art projects, and storytelling, children learn what teasing and bullying are. They also learn ways to deal with these behaviors while building tolerance at the same time. In addition, H.E.L.P. stresses that helping each other live peacefully is a community effort, involving students, group leaders, parents/families, administrators, and center staff.
In this two hour session, experienced line staff, program managers, and site supervisors will participate in hands-on activities from the H.EL.P. curriculum that promote a safe, nurturing, and respectful afterschool environment. Copies of the curriculum will be available for participants.
