Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP pronounced OI-VAY-us) is a comprehensive approach that includes schoolwide, classroom, individual, and community components.  The program is focused on long-term change that creates a safe and positive school climate. It is designed and evaluated for use in all school levels with program goals being to reduce and prevent bullying problems among schoolchildren and to improve peer relations at school.  The Olweus Program begins with training a school team and expands to the entire school staff, the students, and the school community.  STARS provides certified trainers to implement the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program in HCDE.  

 

PEACEFUL SCHOOL BUS is offered at the elementary level. 

MOVE2STAND (M2S) is an interactive training program of STARS that challenges students to examine their attitudes toward bullying.  This four-hour event has a goal of creating empathy and helping students understand how bullying impacts individual students, their school climate, and their overall school community.  Though the target audience for this training is middle school, in special cases, training is provided for incoming high school students.  Thanks to funding from the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga and the Weldon F. Osborne Foundation for enabling an expansion of this program.
