Anti-Bullying Month!

March has been designated anti-bullying month at the Aliamanu Boys & Girls Club. We started the month with an arts and crafts project to create a poster for the club. The members worked hard to paint it with bright colors and positive words to proudly display in the club. The upcoming weeks will feature other arts and crafts activities, an anti-bullying PSA media project with Franz's new group "Dudes for Awesome," the LITs will be creating an online survey to learn about attitudes towards bullying at Aliamanu and at other clubs, and the GRLZ 4 Change program will be creating an internet petition against bullying for youth to sign and show their support online. The main goal is to help youth better understand the effects of bullying and better responses with their peers instead of bullying each other.
