Bullying Prevention Presentation

FYI members, Hali, Justin, Oli, Olivia B, and Shreya hosted a bullying prevention presentation at the High School during Gold Block. We had a powerpoint presentation about bullying, why people bully, how to take positive action, and what would you do scenarios. We also performed skits to get everyone involved. Overall the feedback was very good and 100% of participants were satisfied with the presentation. We had a slight increase in knowledge from the pre-test to post-test questions. Students had a 14% increase in knowledge about students' basic rights when attending school and 32% increase in knowledge about the effects of bullying on a teenager. Participants said they learned how to "not stand idly by when something is happening"  and that "just because your friend is bullying others it doesn't mean you have to too". We encouraged students to use the bullying report form and tell someone if they witness bullying. Overall, the presentation was powerful and impactful.  In the future, we'd like to increase advertising to get more students in the room and practice the presentation as a group so the presentation itself stays streamlined. 11 people attended the presentation. Great job FYI!
