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 others whenever possible.
Involve parents, teachers, and other trusted adults.
Educate yourself and others to recognize and prevent bullying.
Listen - really listen - to others who are reaching out for help.
Defend yourself physically - only as a last resort.
Our program focuses on all of the above principles; working to empower participants to develop their own strategies for this increasingly important issue.
