Teaching Idaho children how to make healthy choices for a better life. We teach Idaho children how to make healthy choices for better lives. Life is all about choices and we are responsible for our choices.

Our drug and alcohol prevention programs influence behaviors through hands-on interactive fun, curriculum like Mind Up, Positive Action and Second Step. The education impacts the student, the school climate, the families and the whole community.

National Bullying Prevention Center - Promotional Materials

Did you know that October is National Bullying Prevention Month and this year is the 10th anniversary of its initiation?

This year's theme is "The End of Bullying Begins with Me!" This theme encourages kids not to be bystanders because when you are a bystander, whether you know it or not, you are sending a message to the bully that the bully's behavior is acceptable – when it's not!

Here are some tips to help avoid becoming a bystander:
- Don't laugh
- Don't encourage the bully in any way
- Stay at a safe distance and help the target get away
- Don't become an "audience" for the bully
- Help the victim in any way you can
- Support the victim in private
- Include the victim in some of your activities
- If you notice someone being isolated from others, invite them to join you
- TELL AN ADULT
