Truth, Facts & Lies is a seven-session educational program designed for teens focusing on social media, online solicitation, abuse, addiction, bullying and other important topics.
Each school selects 20-40 participants. Truth, Facts & Lies volunteers meet with selected students once per month throughout the school year to present a lesson developed by a curriculum team.
The program culminates in Awareness Day, in which students have an opportunity to share what they have learned with their peers through games and discussions.
Challenge Day offers immediate results in just one day by creating trust and connection between participants who step out of their comfort zones through music and games and a deeply memorable exercise known as Cross The Line.
The Challenge Day program is 6 ½ hours and takes place in a gym, assembly room, or large conference room. Challenge Day Leaders work to create trust and connection in the morning by helping participants step out of their comfort zones through music and games. Participants begin to recognize stereotypes and labels that exist among them, and are then willing to share and connect as human beings.
During the afternoon, participants examine the impact that bullying, oppression and other forms of violence has on their lives and the lives of people around them. They find commonality and a sense of belonging through a deeply memorable exercise known as Cross The Line.
These programs go beyond traditional anti-bullying efforts, building compassion and igniting a movement of positive change. The experience is inspiring and awakening for students and adults - many say it's "the best day of my life!"
