October 7, 2013 was World Prevention Day for Bullying, also known as Blue Shirt Day. In an effort to "stomp out bullying" club members celebrated this day by signing a pledge in which they committed to stand up to bullying instead of just standing by. Members pledged to "stand up for others, be a leader, be kind, respect others, and be tolerant."
At the Boys & Girls Club, we strive to promote caring and kindness and encourage our members and staff to celebrate differences and we are happy to see our youth taking the initiative to do the same!
