Knox Bridge School introducing 2 day Workshops Conducted by Canadian Red Cross
ABOUT “BEYOND THE HURT”:
Beyond the Hurt is a “RespectED” bullying prevention program that is centered on youth participation and creativity. It uses a comprehensive (or whole school) approach to prevention that empowers students, parents and school staff to create a safer learning environment for everyone.
YOUR ROLE in “BEYOND THE HURT”
Over the next 2 days you will be trained and mentored to become “Youth Facilitators” and bullying prevention ambassadors who will deliver bullying prevention workshops for your younger peers. This may include the younger students at your school as well as grades 5 – 8 at your local elementary/middle schools.
- Facilitation Training/Practice
- Certification & Evaluations
AFTER THE “BEYOND THE HURT” TRAINING…
Once you have completed the 2 day Beyond the Hurt training, you will receive a signed certificate from your trainer confirming your status as a RespectEd youth volunteer and Beyond the Hurt Youth Facilitator.
BUT! That’s not the end of it. The real goal of this program is for the youth to pass on what they know to the younger kids in their community. So, over the next couple of weeks or months you will work closely with your support teacher and co-facilitators to build your workshop and deliver it to kids in your school and in your elementary feeder schools.
BEYOND THE HURT is just one of the many programs delivered by the Canadian Red Cross, RespectED: Violence & Abuse Prevention program.
