The Maryland Center for School Safety has chosen Berks County based nonprofit, The Camel Project, to present the program “Deconstructing the Culture of Bullying: Preventing Bullying-Based Violence in Our Schools” at the MCSS 2021 School Safety Conference on July 12, 2022, in Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Camel Project Executive Director Pamela S. Gockley will lead the discussion on school-wide methods to eliminate bullying-based violence.
Attendees to the in-person conference include Education Administrators, Teachers, School Psychologists/Guidance Counselors, School Resource Officers (SROs), Law Enforcement, Local/State Emergency Managers, Crisis Intervention Units, and other school safety stakeholders.
Gockley says unresolved bullying behaviors in young people, if not interrupted, often result in bullying behaviors in adulthood. The “Deconstructing the Culture of Bullying” program educates and equips learners to set standards with tools, strategies, and a wellness plan to address the destructive outcomes of trauma, violence, and suicide stemming from the aggressive learned behavior of bullying.
The Maryland Center for School Safety is an independent unit of the State government that provides grants, training, and support to public, special education, and private schools throughout Maryland.
The Camel Project is a Pennsylvania nonprofit corporation and a registered 501(c)(3) organization in Reading, PA. The Camel Project’s mission is to eliminate bullying in all its forms and assist communities, including schools, organizations, and individuals, in changing the culture of violent and unacceptable behaviors that result in trauma and abuse.
