Student Assemblies, Teacher In-Services & Parent Programs Work!

A recent study reflected the urgency of appropriate action by schools to “…identify, classify, and prioritize the components of bullying prevention programs in an effort to empower educators to reduce the frequency, severity, and pervasive nature of bullying in elementary through middle-school-aged students” (Banks, 2011, p.59).  “I Am Unafraid” has been specifically designed via current research to successfully empower students, teachers, and parents.  How successful has it been?  Global studies suggest a 50% REDUCTION IN BULLYING INCIDENCES (DiBasilio, 2008; Packman, Lepkowski, Overton, & Smaby, 2005; Olweus, 1993).  Contact us…we’ll help your school set up an anti-bullying program that works!

2014 SPRING DATES STILL AVAILABLE!

The “I Am Unafraid” anti-bullying program takes the best practices and elements of our STAMP Out Bullying program and frames them in a more positive platform that is consistent with Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports (PBIS) . Those self-empowerment, research-validated, anti-bullying elements are;

U

N

A – Avoid bullies

F – Find a friend

R – Report bullying

A – Act confident

I

D

The presentation utilizes comedy, music & story-telling entertainment, and research-validated application interaction & engagement education. Since research suggests that bullying begins in elementary school and peaks in middle school, we have age-appropriate  [elementary through middle school]  presentations. In addition, we have developed the “I Am Unafraid” anti-bullying curriculum. Kindergarten through 5th graders will sing the songs, dance along, and be captivated by the music videos, video books, worksheets and lesson plans, set in CD & DVD presentations. Plus, supporting resources include wristbands, stickers, posters, banners, t-shirts, lanyards and many free supports including P.R.T.S. (Parent Pages, Resource References, Teacher Talk, Student Sheets). See samples at IAmUnafraid.com.
