TEACH is a peer abuse (bullying) prevention program that equips students with alternatives to abusive behavior in order to build a healthier foundation for relationships later in life. We seek to provide a safe environment where students can learn skills that foster a culture of active bystanders and assertive behavior where they learn the power of standing up for themselves and others. This activities-based program builds skills in body image, self-esteem, empathy, personal boundaries, communication, healthy relationships, peer abuse (bullying), teamwork (cooperation), and finally, conflict resolution.
For 4th through 6th-grade students, the focus of TEACH is on healthy friendships. In the 7th and 8th grades, the focus is on healthy dating and peer relationships, covering the material required under the California Healthy Youth Act of 2016.
- The 8th grade class saw a 34% decrease in peer abuse victimization rates after five years of the TEACH program
- Overall, 41% of students showed an increase in resiliency by the end of the school year.
