Anti-Bullying Program

EmPower Urself

EmPower urself is a program designed to increase awareness of, and sensitivity to, bullying of gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered and questioning (GLBTQ) youth. This program creates an atmosphere at school that does not tolerate this behavior by any student, staff, teacher or administrative official.

While the number of suicides among GLBTQ youth is difficult to measure accurately, some researchers contend that as many as 1-in-3 suicides may be attributed to the fear and self-hatred that often accompanies coming to understand one’s self as gay in a sometimes hostile, anti-gay environment.
