Education is key to increasing awareness of the problem of bullying in this modern world of technology and social media. At David’s Legacy Foundation we believe that this is a community issue that requires parents, students, educators, business leaders, and legal experts to come together in partnership to address this issue. Although we ALL play a part in prevention, the core of the solution lies in our youth because who better to drive change than those who are living in it on a day-to-day basis. Their voices are powerful! Because of this core belief, David’s Legacy Foundation, along with the University of Texas San Antonio Counseling Department and Amerigroup Insurance developed a Leadership Workshop designed to help REAL students find REAL solutions to REAL problems in their schools and communities.
All content fits into the social and emotional learning (SEL) education model. This is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set, and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
Next REAL Summit date TBD.
