SCHOOLS

Virtual Programs

In 2021, Dare to Care shifted our national award-winning programs to a virtual delivery which further expanded the Dare to Care reach. Our Virtual Programs allow educators to implement the modules independently at their own pace, revisit the message of kindness throughout the year, and make the program more accessible.

 

The Virtual Program includes content that has been developed to engage and motivate students through a combination of teaching, storytelling, activities and requires no additional preparation or work for classroom teachers.

Holding true to the belief that ALL stakeholders in a school community must be engaged in creating a climate of respect, the Dare to Care Virtual Program provides learning modules for K-2, Grade 3-4, Grade 5-6, and Grade 7-9. Additionally, the Virtual Program includes three parent/guardian education modules and extensive professional learning modules for administrators, teachers, and support staff.

Hands Up

Dare to Care is a new program for me and after teaching for over 20 years it is a real answer to the issue of bullying. I have been enjoying the online courses and found the content easy to follow, comprehensive, and spot on.

As I have been teaching it to my students, they too have bought in and understand the language, the concepts, and are beginning to put it into practice when solving conflicts.

St. Albert Public Schools — Teacher 

The program was engaging for our students and generated many great discussions about bullying. It gave us a common language for our school to use.

Grande Prairie Catholic School Board — Principal

I really liked that it gave the students strategies to express themselves when they feel they are being bullied. Dare to Care also has given the students the tools to have conversations with their peers to problem-solve on their own!! This is a great program!
