TORONTO, Nov. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - Grow Interactive Learning Inc. (GROW) continues its mission to raise awareness about the immediate need for action against bullying during Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week, taking place between November 12 to 17, 2012.
Founded in 2008, GROW is a school board approved character building and bully prevention program designed for elementary students in kindergarten through grade eight. Within the school environment, GROW offers fun, interactive and hands-on learning techniques that encourage students to hone their social and leadership skills while building independence and self-confidence.
"Bullying is an issue that affects over 100,000 Canadian children each year. As we have recently seen in the media, the effects of pro-longed bullying can be devastating and even life-threatening," says Daniel Carson, Owner/Director of GROW. "Our goal is to create a positive school climate where students feel comfortable, valued, accepted and secure."
GROW offers eight, unique character building and bully prevention programs that encourage students to learn in both individual and group settings. Depending on the school's specific needs or requirements, GROW can tailor one or more of its programs.
Carson continues, "Bullying can have a significant impact on a person at any point between childhood and adulthood. We aim to teach kids about respect, integrity, empathy and responsibility in order to facilitate behavioral change as early as possible."
GROW has been used successfully in over 75 schools and has reached over 100,000 students in Ontario. In addition, GROW has become one of the leading educational resources for schools to teach kids about bully prevention.
