Beyond the Hurt (BTH) Youth Facilitator Training is helpingus create a safe, bullying-free, and healthy environment for our students. Our BTH teacher training took place over the course of two days and built capacity in our Leadership teachers to educateand train students in becoming peer instructors themselves. Since then, our grade 10 level Leadership students are working with ourteacherswith content ranging from the power of a label to how to take proactive action and promote healthy relationships.
As a teacher, my task design improved greatly for my classes as the implementation overlaps nicely with the Leadership curriculum with the 10’s Speaking and Presenting module, the 20’s Interpersonal Relationships module, and the 30’s Peer Mentoring and Extending the Mentoring Relationship modules. A huge win-win for education and wellness at Lord Beaverbrook High School! Go LORDS!
