Embracing and accepting one another

-A A +A

Today we look at Asset #10, Safety. According to the Search Institute, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when they feel safe at home, at school and in the community.”

This week, the counselors of the Los Alamos Public School District pursued a training called, A Change of Heart.

The goal of the training is a prevention-based approach to a state mandate to reduce bullying in the schools. This program is an attempt to change school climate by implementing an assets approach.

Ten sixth-grade students were selected from each elementary school and trained in asset language, how to break down barriers, how to build relationships and how not to judge a book by the cover.

This community of sixth-graders will soon rotate up to a brand new school environment, where they will meet hundreds of new students forming a new school community. The activities in the training allowed them to see how they were similar to each other in more ways than they are different.

We’re all the same really, irrelevant of income, social status or background. A Change of Heart illustrated the lessons to empower our youth to understand the healthy power they possess to, as Ghandi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
