Harmony At Home

Mission

To end the cycles of violence and abuse by empowering children and young adults with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to lead healthy and productive lives.

The Big Idea

Last year, due in part to MC Gives, we were able to serve 14 schools with our bullying prevention program. 9,514 youth were positively impacted by this program. Throughout the past few years, we have noticed an uprising in students motivated to take a stand against bullying. In response, we developed a platform for which students can take the lead in designing and delivering a Student-Led Assembly that will inspire 'upstander' actions among their peers. The Student-Led Assembly program allows the student committee to engage with all youth and staff to build momentum and awareness about anti bullying. Over a two month period, the Harmony At Home Bullying Prevention Coach is on campus every week. The coach works with the Student-Led Assembly team to assess the school culture and support the students in creating an Assembly for their peers. In response to the demand for this program, Harmony At Home successfully implemented the Student-Led Assembly in Chualar K-8th, Walter Colton Middle School and Millennium Charter High School. Our hope is to implement 6 more Student-Led Assembly's this upcoming school year. As the students at Chualar stated in their flyer "Speak Up Speak Out".

"This club/process (The Student Led Assembly) has really changed me both physically and mentally. My crew is more of a family to me. I truly loved the experience, thank you for showing me what it is like to prevent both myself and others from getting bullied. I love the ABC Club (Anti-Bullying Club)".
