HEAR -- Helping Everyone Achieve Respect

The purpose of this interactive session is to share the methods of youth empowerment used in HEAR -- Helping Everyone Achieve Respect. HEAR is a student workshop, developed by subject matter experts at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, that impacts middle school students' thinking about bullying prevention and respect building. Content, resources and opportunities to schedule HEAR workshops will be discussed, and participants will also play a group game (one that is fun, simple and stress-less, we promise!), role play and participate in small group discussions that will prepare them to facilitate HEAR workshops with their own students. 

$30 (includes all materials) 

Target Audience: Middle School
