An overview of our 2019 - 2020 bullying prevention programming.
October is National Bullying Prevention Month and The Marcus L. Ruscitto Charitable Foundation is back for the 2019 – 2020 school year with programming that positively impacts the lives of young children in preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary school. This year, we're providing grants in Western Pennsylvania for the following activities:
TEAMology - an evidence-based social emotional curriculum for teachers developed at Penn State University that encourages positive school culture
Raising a Thinking Child - an evidence-based social emotional curriculum for caregivers developed as part of the I Can Problem Solve framework at Drexel University
The Gab Squad - entertaining assembly performances for young children that incorporates authentic music and comedy with anti-bullying messaging
WQED - public media on-air service announcements that engage children and caregivers
