Point Break Assembly For KU Freshman This Week
The purpose of Point Break is to improve the behaviors, values, and attitudes of high school students on their campuses and in their communities, intervening before acts of bullying, hatred or violence occur. As a result, better learning environments are created, relationships are forged and reconciliation begins. Students, who before the workshop bullied others, often feel a sense of empathy towards their fellow students and the desire to stop their bullying behavior after experiencing Point Break.
This program provides for honest discussion concerning many issues affecting our kids today.
This workshop provides help to kids that feel disconnected or isolated...bullied...and down.
Participants are actively involved in games and exercises which foster interaction among varying ethnic and social groups. It provides a way to reach out before a student hurts themselves or others.
This is our 3rd year offering this workshop and the students who have taken this workshop speak to its impact on making their school a welcoming atmosphere.
"In my years as a KUHS student, I have never seen a program that had so much impact.", said Sam, a current Senior and student leader.
Klamath Union divided their freshman class in half and had the day-long workshop for them either Thursday the 26th or Friday the 27th.
