Bullying Prevention Programs
Since 2000, CEVP staff have been actively involved in bullying prevention at the elementary, middle and high school levels. State funding allowed staff to develop the S.T.A.R.S. Program (Students Teaching Acceptance & Respect in Schools) where trained middle school peer leaders presented skits and information on bullying to elementary school students. From 2004-2007, a federal grant enabled staff to work closely with staff, parents and students at the Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School to implement a comprehensive, school-wide bullying prevention program based on the evidence-based Olweus Bullying Prevention Program model.
Since the passage of the Massachusetts Anti-Bullying Bill, An Act Relative to Bullying in Schools, CEVP has provided effective, research- based bullying prevention trainings for staff, parents and students for school districts in Massachusetts that meet and exceed the requirements of M.G.L. c. 71, § 37O. Our Professional Development Trainings for staff are appropriate for schools, camps and community-based agencies. Our presentations for students can be geared to student in pre-K through high school.
