We offer the following three services and supports to address peer cruelty and prevent bullying (click each box to read more):
In the form of presentations, talks, personnel development, awareness activities, workshops and more, we can provide support for you and your community.
- We provided 216 hours of prevention and education services to schools, service groups and a local recreation district. With 1 out of 3 students being bullied online, we also created a responsive Online with Kind summer prevention opportunity for kids between the ages of 10 – 16. Rocks were painted with kindness quotes and placed in community parks to encourage time outdoors. All [30+] rocks were found and brought to our office for a chance to win a Nintendo Switch and online educational games. In exchange, the kids received short lessons on digital citizenship, cyberbullying laws and “upstander” protocols, and Safe2Tell reporting procedures.
Depending on the situation, we can design interventions for the targeted child and even the child who bullies.
- We responded to 26 bullying incident reports, providing 219 hours of advocacy support to families, students and school staff. Depending on the situation, we can design interventions for the targeted child and even the child who bullies. This year, we designed and delivered an 8-week equine intervention for a child who has bullied others.
We work with community leaders and businesses owners to provide help targeted individuals and their families.
- We spent 423 hours working in partnership with other organizations because we cannot do this work alone. PEER Kindness is leading a collective impact effort known as the Montrose Youth Coalition (MYC) with CASA, Montrose County School District, Hilltop, Center for Mental Health, Montrose Public Library, Partners and the Boys and Girls Club to address youth connectedness. This was one of the school district’s identified concerns they publicly shared from the 2017 Healthy Kids Colorado Survey data. The MYC meets monthly to align their mutually reinforcing activities to five agreed upon pillars of connectedness: relationships, safety, empathy, belonging and relevance.
