SCCT Bullying Prevention Programs are funded by the TD Charitable Foundation.

SCCT’s Bullying Prevention aligns with and is clearly linked to the South Carolina Standards for Health and Safety Education, Safe and Drug Free Schools, and South Carolina Guidance Curriculum Standards. Thanks to our efforts in securing grant funding, we are able to offer the following programs at a greatly discounted rate to Greenville County Public Schools. Despite the scheduling challenges we’re all experiencing due to COVID-19, we are putting our creative minds to work as we brainstorm creative alternatives to continue serving you and your students safely.

The Boy Who Cried Bully: School Tour

The Boy Who Cried Bully, is a 50-minute production with a question and answer session immediately following the performance. Based on the famous Aesop’s Fable, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, it is a script that teaches as well as entertains. The target audience is 3rd grade, with an audience size of 100-250. This script lays the foundation for the continued Bullying Prevention efforts at the Middle School level and provides the elementary aged audience with a specific action plan should they be confronted by a bully. It also stresses the idea that bullying comes in many forms. SCCT will also provide a “Bully Box” for the school – a confidential place for students to leave notes for teachers/administrators about bullying they have seen or been affected by.

6th Grade Bullying Prevention Workshop

Bullying Prevention workshops are conducted by trained adult facilitators. Workshops are provided to individual classes in order to serve all sixth grade students in one school day. The workshop is thought provoking, engaging, educational and memorable for the students and includes dramatic role-play so students can test their responses in a simulated bullying situation. The facilitators offer information, address the issues of bullying, and offer ways to change student’s thinking and behavior with regard to bullying in all of its forms.
