Purdue University Extension and Community Coalition for Change of Steuben County will present “Beyond Bullying” from 6:00 p.m. to 7:55 p.m., Wednesday, September 13, 2017, at Carnegie Public Library, 322 South Wayne Street, Angola. The programs are free and open to the community.
We have been inundated with ads for back-to-school clothes, notebooks, shoes, backpacks, crayons, pens and more. But what do we provide our children to help them negotiate the problems that arise with teasing, cliques, fights and bullying? October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Learn the science behind the basic human need to belong. Learn what you and your children can do to end bullying, isolation and rejection.
The documentary, “Reject,” will be shown for adults and youth aged 12 and up accompanied by an adult. Immediately following the film Megan Peterson will lead a discussion with panelists Denise Magwire and Elayna Hasty, both experienced facilitators of anti-bullying programs. Children in grades K though 5 are invited to learn about and participate in activities that foster inclusion, led by Tami Mosier.
Purdue University Extension provides scientific research-based information and education in the areas of Health and Human Sciences, Agriculture and Natural Resources, Economic and Community Development, and 4-H Youth Development.
Community Coalition for Change is an outreach organization dedicated to creating safe spaces for marginalized groups in the Angola area while also making discussions of social justice, tolerance, environmental sustainability and diversity part of the fabric of Northeast Indiana life.
