G.R.E.A.T. Addresses Bullying
The G.R.E.A.T. Program teaches children life skills that are useful in making choices and decisions and in setting goals for their future. G.R.E.A.T. shows children how to interact with others, communicate, resolve conflict, and manage anger through role-playing scenarios and structured activities. G.R.E.A.T. also combats bullying issues by offering components at several different levels: elementary schools, middle schools, and families.
