The purpose of the School Climate Prevention Project activity is to develop a youth-lead framework that addresses school climate issues and prevention issues of concern to students.
School Climate Prevention Projects use discussion topics and experiential education activities to generate genuine discussion and reflection on the climate of the school, identify current issues, and brainstorm ways to combat these issues to improve the school. These activities and discussions take place in small groups and are led by student leaders from that school. Activity topics include name games and get-to-know-you activities, empathy, the importance of positive connections, bullying, and goal setting.
