Student teams will lead new anti-bullying initiative in NH
The New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities has joined with motivational speaker William Harris to establish the program.
Once the student leadership teams are selected, they'll meet with Harris, a former student-athlete and 1978 basketball All-American who frequently speaks at schools about leadership, healthy choices, strategies for success and the team experience.
The student leadership teams and their advisers will meet regularly to develop a student-led anti-bullying program for their schools. "We aim to foster a positive school climate and change norms about the acceptability of bullying," said council member Tracy Walbridge.
The council also has grants of up to $500 available to support anti-bullying initiatives. More information about the grants and how to apply for them can be found at nhddc.org/smallgrants.html. For more information about the program and how to participate, contact Kristin Ingram at firstname.lastname@example.org.
