Bullying and Violence

Research has shown that hurtful behaviors such as intimidation, taunting and threats of violence can have long-term detrimental effects on both the victims and the perpetrators. Youth are having difficulty with social and emotional competencies, decision-making skills, self-control, self-discipline, and relationship management, all of which lead to destructive behaviors at home, at school and in the community. Lions Quest curricula:

  • Provide research-based tools empowering students to develop respect, responsibility and caring behaviors, actively engaging educators, parents and community members in reinforcement.
  • Incorporate five critical elements proven to reduce negative, anti-social behaviors and promote positive school behaviors- comprehensive classroom curriculum; positive school climate; parent involvement; community involvement; and professional development.
  • Teach effective listening skills, good decision-making skills, conflict resolution, self-awareness, social awareness, self-control, self-discipline, resisting peer pressure, and celebrating diversity.
  • Teach a variety of community-building activities to create a safe and nurturing learning environment, which encourages the development of positive social behaviors and reduces incidences of misconduct.
  • Develop stress reduction and anger management skills

  • Address internal and external pressures to use drugs and teach peer pressure strategies
  • Teach resistance and other social skills, as well as emotional competencies
  • Provide accurate, age-appropriate information about the short- and long-term impact of drug use on a young person's health, friendships, interests and future goals
