NCCJ’s two-day anti-bullying and prejudice reduction program, BRIDGES leads approximately 20-25 students and 2 teachers through basic diversity awareness and self-esteem building.
BRIDGES is designed to meet the learning styles of diverse students. Through large group and small group discussions, media presentations, games and hands-on activities, students work to develop greater insights and new views of themselves and a positive view of others.
As students progress through the program they begin to understand the origins of prejudice and how it affects others, to confront their own prejudicial beliefs and recognize the harmful effects of stereotypes. At the completion of the 2-day session, students will develop strategies to implement their learning in their own schools, spreading their knowledge throughout their peers.
