Bullying is an epidemic that schools across the country are struggling to combat. The Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice (OCCJ) strives to train Oklahoman students to combat bullying with its program, Middletown. OCCJ staff and volunteers facilitate the program in middle schools throughout the Tulsa area.
This 3-hour interactive workshop provides students with the tools and skills to reduce incidents of stereotyping and bullying in their schools. Students will learn through activities that bring them together in a safe and inclusive environment. Students will also learn about the effects of bullying on their peers as well as themselves. The activities in Middletown focus on the power of words, body-image, race, gender, relationships, and socio-economic status.
We provide the curriculum and all necessary materials (including a PowerPoint presentation), and the teacher and/or other school faculty provides behavior management and technological support.
We'll work with your schedule.
