be nice.® Training for Facilitators
February 27 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
What is be nice.®?
There is an increased nexus between mental health and crime. Created by the Mental Health Foundation of West Michigan, be nice.® is a mental health education, bully and suicide prevention initiative that creates a positive cultural change through simply daily actions. Through a four-part action plan, participants learn how to notice those around you, invite change, challenge yourself and others to be kind and empower yourself to take action.
Become a be nice.® Facilitator
be nice.® presentations are available for students ages Pre-K – 12th grade. Due to the high demand of these presentations and our limited Safe School staff, we are seeking volunteers to help present to our younger Elementary school groups (Pre-K – 5th grade).
Elementary presentations are 30 minutes long. The facilitator will read an illustrated book to explain the four-part action plan and lead the group in a set of activities that further demonstrates how students can notice, invite, challenge and empower their peers.
If you enjoy working with children and would like to become a volunteer facilitator, we ask that you attend a training at our Crime Stoppers of Houston headquarters located in the heart of Midtown.
- Facilitator training fee is $25
- Facilitators will be subject to a background check
- Includes a copy of the book and materials needed to lead group activities.
