The Steps to Respect Program is designed by the same company as Talking About Touching, and focuses on bullying prevention through education and assertiveness. This program allows children to recognize and address the phenomenon of bullying that occurs in schools and affects many children. Children will learn to work with each other and with school officials to take steps needed to prevent bullying and use good conflict resolution skills when bullying does occur.
Additionally, the Youth Services Program can provide a healthy relationship presentation for junior high and high school students. The goal of the healthy relationship presentation is to provide information on preventing interpersonal violence and sexual assault between intimate teen couples as well as among peers. The presentation will be facilitated by TWC’s teen advocate and at least one peer leader from the Teens Acting Against Violence (T.A.A.V). youth program.
If you have any questions about these or other services that TWC offers to delta schools, or wish to schedule a time for TWC to visit and work with your schools and communities, please contact me at 543-3444 or Eileen_Arnold@twcpeace.org. In the 2011-2012 school year TWC visited eight schools in the Yukon-Kuskokwim area including Napaskiak, Atmauthluak, Kaskigluk, Mountain Village, Chevak, Nightmute, Alakanuk, and Kotlik.
