The intention of the One Heart Anti-Bullying Workshop is to start the conversation about bullying. During this workshop, students will learn active listening strategies.
We use real life interviews with students and adults who have experienced being the bully, the bystander or the bullied. These interviews are effective because students can relate to the content and have discussions about real events occurring in their lives.
Participants will write letters and discuss how they can make a difference in their community by standing up for what’s right.
