Members of the Junior World Changers Club at East School in Long Beach learned new techniques to become leaders as part of the school's efforts to end bullying. On March 11, representatives from Free the Children organization visited the school for a fourth and fifth grade assembly to discuss the power of individuals to make a difference in the world.
After the assembly, fifth-grade club members attended a special three-hour workshop, where they received training to become anti-bullying ambassadors in their school and community. During the workshop, students participated in role-playing exercises that gave them tools to help them continue to improve the climate of their school and help their fellow students feel physically and emotionally safe.
Students in the Junior World Changers Club work under the guidance of club moderators Tamara Grosso and Christine Lamarca.
