ACT UP! TO STOP BULLYING!:

We all are aware of the negative impact that bullying has on children and how it can affect them socially in the school environment. Bullying is the most common form of violence in our society - between 15% and 30% of students are bullies or victims. Furthermore, the U.S. Department of Justice reports that younger students are more likely to be bullied than older students.

Come join us on June 14 to learn about our Drama Kids Act Up! to Stop Bullying workshops that we are making available to schools to educate students on the harmful effects of bullying. These workshops raise student awareness and sensitivity to bullying in a fun and creative format. Together, we can make a dramatic difference
