Box Out Bullying uses interactive live theater, audience participation, and proven effective anti-bullying techniques to capture the attention of all students. Your students are learning by seeing, listening, AND doing, which produces better results in message retention than using a video, a book, or lecturer. Students will laugh, cheer, and think! They will walk away with important tools and insight to be stand-up citizens and key players in ending bullying. Box Out Bullying is a comprehensive program which includes: a dynamic live theater performance, research-based curricula, and follow-up resource materials. This all combines to offer students, educators, and parents the tools they need to make their school safe and free from bullying.
