MAAV Leads Bullying Prevention Workshops at Jr. Police Academy

jrpoliceacademyThis summer, we were able to participate in all three sessions of the Junior Police Academy, offered by the Melrose Police Department! More than 100 students attended this program and participated in our bullying prevention workshops. The workshops focused on the role of bystanders, with the message that just one act by one person can make a difference in preventing bullying. Thanks to Sara Serisky for leading two workshops, and to our awesome student leaders who co-led another workshop with Director Rebecca Mooney: Claire Haldeman, Keith Morris, Rachel Freed and Mahta Fesshaie.
