OJJDP will host ”Safe School and Community Environment for Youth, Part 1: Strategies and Solutions” as part of OJJDP’s Preventing Youth Hate Crimes & Identity-Based Bullying Initiative webinar series.
During the webinar, which is targeted to school communities, presenters will:
- Describe what safe and affirming behaviors look like versus rejecting behaviors.
- Discuss how to instill in children an appreciation and respect for one another's differences and help them develop empathy, conflict resolution and critical thinking skills.
- Help participants understand how schools, families, law enforcement, and communities work together to prevent the development of the prejudiced attitudes and violent behavior that lead to hate crimes.
- Explain how to create an equitable, supportive, safe and inclusive climate in schools and community programs for youth.
The webinar series is supported by OJJDP's National Training and Technical Assistance Center (NTTAC). To obtain handouts and documents for this event, contact the OJJDP NTTAC Help Desk at [email protected] or by phone at 1-833-647-0513.
