Let's stand up to bullies.
The SHIELD Against Bullying program is based on 5 important guiding principles:
Safety - Stay safe, first and foremost.
Help - Help others whenever possible.
Involve - Involve parents, teachers, and other trusted adults.
Educate - Educate yourself and others to recognize and help prevent bullying.
Listen - Listen - really listen - to others who are reaching out for help.
Defend - Use physical self-defense to stay safe as a last resort.
Our program focuses on all of the above principles, while empowering participants to develop their own strategies for this increasingly important subject.
