Challenge Day is an Anti-Bullying program designed to empower students to create a school-wide culture of kindness.
Bullying, teasing, isolation – these occur far too often in our schools. Their effects can be devastating and life-changing and can include low self-esteem, poor grades, truancy, depression, substance abuse, and violence. The program draws on the one-day experiential workshop called Challenge Day. Designed to engage student participants in activities both before and after Challenge Day, the program promotes collaboration among educators, students, parents and community agencies in a focused effort to improve the social climate in area middle schools.
