Allies of all ages create safe and inclusive schools
Allies of all ages create safe and inclusive schools


Elementary, Middle and High Schools including their YEP Programs, provide instruction and activities for students to develop their skills as Allies. Students deepen their empathy for the students who are hurt by bullying langauge. Students strengthen their abilities to address the bullying language of their peers and to act more thoughtfully about including any one who might seem islolated. Students participated in data talk lessons analyzing their own student survey results, created and participated in assemblies and student workshops, and decorated their schools with poetry, and art projects.  No Name Calling Week: Building A Community of Allies is part of a comprehensive program to build Safe, Inclusive and Respectful schools inclusive of all our diversity.
