Need a few tips to ensure you foster a bully-free summer? As you know, both our WEB and Link Crew peer mentoring programs double, indirectly, as anti-bullying programs. While bullying prevention is not the primary intent of our middle school and high school transition programs, both naturally create a school climate that does not tolerate bullying.

Does that mean you can only take what you learn from our Boomerang Project student mentoring programs to improve your school environment? Of course not! Summer is here, which means school is out. To foster a peaceful bully-free atmosphere outside of the classroom over these summer weeks, lean on these anti-bullying tips gathered by Boomerang Project co-founder, Mary Beth Campbell:

Margaret Mead once famously said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” At the Boomerang Project, we couldn't agree more. In fact, it's kind of what we're about. The world of Link Crew and WEB is, relative to the entire world, not a large group. However, within that transition program world there are fervently passionate educators and student leaders who believe that it's not the number of people dedicated to a particular cause that matters, rather it's the amount of passion you commit to it that makes change.

It’s the home stretch! It’s been a long year and you are most likely pretty wiped out. That nice, relaxing summer cannot arrive fast enough. “Yes, And…” it’s still important for you and your awesome student leaders to stay motivated! Even as we near the finish line.

According to Psychology Today, “Motivation is literally the desire to do things. It's the difference between waking up before dawn to pound the pavement and lazing around the house all day. It's the crucial element in setting and attaining goals—and research shows you can influence your own levels of motivation and self-control. So figure out what you want, power through the pain period, and start being who you want to be.”
