Contributed by Braces Faces
Four students from Pajaro Valley High School (PVHS), located in Watsonville, California announce the creation of their school’s first anti-bullying club, named the Brace Faces. The purpose of the club is twofold; one, the prevention of bullying on campus through inclusion opportunities, and two, provide informative educational materials on community based anti-bullying initiatives.
When asked how the student group came up with this concept, Fernando Diaz, who is the club’s president, stated “We want to give a voice to the marginalized and underrepresented students who are often bullied and unable to advocate for themselves. This club is named the 'Brace Faces' for symbolic reasons, but the club is open for all students to participate, and make a difference through meaningful action research initiatives.”
In the coming weeks the club will have a fully functional website with various links to other informative avenues to explore the growing anti-bullying issue.
Together, we can make a difference, one school community at a time.
