Children Sub Commission
The Commission and Stand Up and Speak Out work together to help foster a positive school climate for children and youth throughout Connecticut by building empathy through the arts with a musical about the effects of bullying. It addresses the effects that exclusion and negativity have on our youth and informs students about ways in which they can step up against the cycle of insensitivity.
The goal of the partnership is to raise awareness about the critical importance of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and to empower youth leaders. By leading with kindness, youth can combat negativity and exclusion. Building evidence-based programs is a way to reach those that have been affected.
