150,000 children miss
school each day because of
GRADE 5-9 | TAKE THE TIME DAY
The Take the Time day is the most powerful of the student days. This age group is a very difficult demographic to mobilize because the code of silence is so very strong. The full day is a combination of assembly-style presentations, small group activities, games and larger group discussions. Through the carefully designed progression of activities, students will be better able to understand the damage that bullying, cliques, peer pressure, racism, and oppression can cause in individuals and communities. As well, because the goal of the Dare to Care program is to mobilize the silent majority of students into action, the Take the Time Day provides several forums for students to talk about their fears and why they remain silent in bullying situations.
Throughout the student day, participants will discover that there is strength in numbers and that they truly do have the power to make significant changes in their school climate. Through the process of the Take the Time Day, students, teachers, and parents will be shown how to shift the imbalance of power to create the school of their dreams.
Full Day Take the Time day can be modified upon request.
