""We need a culture where we all look out for one another --old and young, popular and unpopular.  We need to build a culture where we take the time to truly listen to one another.  We need to develop a culture where people are responsible for their behavior and are trained to show others they are sorry instead of merely saying they are sorry. We need a culture where it is safe to talk about feelings honestly and without judgment or fear." ~ Stan Davis and Charisse Nixon, Youth Voice Project, 2014

"The use of the term bullying encourages many people to look for "bullies" rather than to look at the actions that anyone may choose and that can do harm, no matter who uses them. In brief, we should talk about what an individual does, not who the person is." Stan Davis and Charisse Nixon, Youth Voice Project, 2014

MINDSET MATTERS
MINDSET MATTERS

“Mindset change is not about picking up a few pointers here and there. It's about seeing things in a new way. When people...change to a growth mindset, they change from a judge-and-be-judged framework to a learn-and-help-learn framework. Their commitment is to growth, and growth take plenty of time, effort, and mutual support.” ― Carol S. Dweck, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success

RESTORATIVE PRACTICES
RESTORATIVE PRACTICES

"What we have found from our research is that kids who felt connected to school . . . smoked less, drank alcohol less, had a later age of sexual debut and attempted suicide less. On top of this, from the educational literature, they do better across every academic measure we have. As our research expanded, [we learned that] this is not just an association—kids who smoke less also felt more connected to school. It is a causal relationship." Robert Blum, Johns Hopkins University
