STAND UP TO BULLIES

 

Are the girls in your Troop or Association talking about bullying they see in their school? Is there bullying happening within the Troop? Try out this program created by GSNC volunteers and staff. Through this program, you'll help girls learn what bullying is, how to stand up to it, and most importantly challenge themselves to be better friends to girls in their Troop, school, and community.

The program is designed for Brownie and Juniors, and lasts about 1.5 hours. It includes detailed instructions on what to do with the girls, a participation certificate, and instructions for earning the patch, which can be purchased in our shop. The program can be tweaked depending on your time, space, or knowledge of what is best for your girls. If you have questions about this program, contact Eliza Zipper, Program and Critical Issues Manager, 516.741.2550 x254.
