Stand Up and Be Counted
Ages 8 to 13

Stand Up and Be Counted
Learn positive attitudes and actions that will help stop bullying and lift others up.
Nearly everyone has been bullied or knows someone they care about who has. Bullying doesn’t benefit anyone – not even the bully. It lowers and demeans the bully – who is strong enough to be a force for good – and it harms the victim who feels powerless and ashamed. Stand Up and Be Counted teaches three ways to deal with bullying in a positive, affirming way:

  • Stand Up – Be confident in your own value
  • Lift Up – Use your influence to help others
  • Pick Up – Help others who are being bullied by picking them up.

Developing a Positive Self-Image
Understand and apply key ways to develop and maintain a positive self-image
Most successful people have a positive self-image. While some of that attitude comes from succeeding, it is impossible to even begin moving toward success unless you believe in yourself enough go after your goals and dreams while learning to fail forward.

Developing a Positive Self-Image teaches both the value of confidence and practical ways to develop and maintain a positive self-image.

Developing a Strong Personal Character
Learn what it takes to develop strong and effective personal character.
Nothing is more personal than character – the set of values and actions that define who you are and who you want to become. Character decisions are the single most important factor that drives you on to success or dooms you to failure. When you learn to make strong character choices and manage daily decisions in alignment with your values, you can begin moving toward your goals and dreams with confidence.

Developing a Strong Personal Character teaches how to choose positive daily decisions that will help you align your actions with your values and learn to achieve lasting personal success.
