Southern Kennebec Abuse Prevention Educator Nancy Provost will be presenting one of the Family Violence Project’s school-based programs to the public at the Harlow Gallery on Sunday, October 4. “The Power of One,” addresses the issue of bullying. Presented during the exhibition Transforming Violence II: It Takes a Community, the program is ideal for families with children ages 5-10+. The two sessions offered at 2pm and 3pm, are free to attend but reservations are requested.
Nancy will read the book “One” by author Kathryn Otoshi at 2pm and 3pm, each followed by a guided discussion about how to help someone who is being bullied, how it feels to be bullied, and how to help the bullying individual to learn new behaviors. The program will finish with a fun group activity that reinforces the idea of working together, as well as a creative writing and drawing activity. This popular program is offered to local schools for grades 2-3, but is fun and appropriate for ages 5-10 and up!
Limited to 12 children per reading. Please RSVP by calling the Harlow Gallery at 622-3813 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Power of One is being presented as part of Transforming Violence II: It Takes a Community, an exhibition on domestic violence on view October 2-24, 2015 produced in partnership with the Family Violence Project of Augusta.
