Montlick & Associates, Atlanta Accident Attorneys, Partners with Children Without A Voice, USA to Launch New Anti-bullying Program in Georgia Schools
Montlick & Associates is proud to partner with Children Without A Voice, USA (CWAV) to launch a new Anti-Bullying program in schools throughout Georgia and across the United States. CWAV is a national, non-profit organization that is dedicated to raising awareness and preventing crimes against children, child abuse and neglect through advocacy and education. CWAV offers free parenting classes, and classes that teach children how to stay safe and how to report abuse. They are a well-respected organization that also advocates for tougher sentencing in crimes against children.
Child abuse is a much bigger problem in this country than most people realize; and every child deserves to be safe and well-cared for. But the heartbreaking truth is that an estimated 9 million children are abused or neglected each year according to Department of Justice estimates - and roughly 2/3 of those go unreported. Studies show that children who experience abuse at home are likely to bring the violence into school in the form of bullying. The new Anti-Bullying Program is one way that both CWAV and Montlick & Associates are working together to help keep our kids safe. The Anti-Bullying program is a highly interactive program for kids in Pre-K through Eighth Grade. The program improves school and child safety by educating and empowering kids to speak out against bullying. It is evidence based and approved by the U.S. Department of Health and Services. One of the key components of the program is the A4K Club; which is a youth ambassadors for kids club that works hard to create an environment of respect, kindness, and human decency within our schools and community. The club is about helping kids find their voice and taking a stand for what is right. Membership is FREE to all students who join and take the pledge.
If you are interested in bringing the Anti-Bullying Program to your school or community, or are interested in the Parent Anti-Bullying Program, please send a request to A4K@cwavusa.org. The complete lesson plans are also available. Please provide the name of your school, position and contact information in an email to A4K@cwavusa.org.
