A Canadian program for bully prevention: Dare to Care
By [posts-author-link] on [date]
The Dare to Care program, developed in Canada, involves students, teachers and parents in efforts to eliminate bullying, and creates greater tolerance and respect in schools. Three developmentally guided programs are available: “Bullyproofing” for elementary schools (Kindergarten-grade 7), “Take the Time” for middle schools (grades 5-9) and “Life Skills” for high school (grades 10-12). Teaching is delivered concurrently through student workshops, professional development sessions, and parent information sessions. Student workshops take a full day, and include presentations, videos, games, and small and large group activities. The Dare to Care program addresses bullying, violence, and substance abuse, and emphasizes the building of awareness, empathy and social responsibility.
