Bullying to be explored at teen summit

The Peace Learning Center, Indianapolis, with support from the Indiana Department of Mental Health and Addiction, will host “Make Some Noise! Upstanders Unite Against Bullying” Friday, June 27, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Athenaeum there. The event, which includes breakfast and lunch, is free for youth ages 12-19 and their adult chaperones.

“This event is designed to align with Peace Learning Center’s unique approach to bullying prevention, which involves engaging entire schools and communities to create cultures of peace where differences are embraced, youth are given a voice and everyone is able to co-exist peacefully,” said Tim Nation, PLC executive director.

The day will be divided into two 50-minute sessions, with teens able to choose sessions. Each breakout will be creative and open for communication, with the goal of having a product (such as a song, visual art, poem or performance) to share with the larger group after lunch. Ken Johnson, Indianapolis Colts chaplain, will share his perspective on bullying during lunch.

Limited seats are available and registration is required: www.peacelearningcenter.org/makesomenoise.
