Safe School Ambassadors - Empowering Students to Reduce Bullying and Improve Educational Outcomes

Community Matters Executive Director and Founder, Rick Phillips, explains how the Safe School Ambassadors Program wakes up the courage of students and school staff to recognize and intervene safely and effectively when bullying and mistreatment occur. Empowering students with the skills and confidence to intervene with their peers is one of the five determinants of CM's Whole School Climate Framework, a blueprint for improving school climate, reducing suspensions, and increasing academic performance.
