Program Designed to Stop Bullying

Posted: Updated:

Standing up against bullying can be difficult, but officials from an anti-bullying campaign are looking for leaders at Jim Hill Middle School willing to take a stand against bullying.

An assembly at the middle school introduced the PAVE Project, which stands for Peer Advocates Voices Empower.

Its a way to address bullying of students with disabilities.

The program is recruiting 4 students for every one student with disabilities, who they believe can be leaders to standing up against bullying .

Jim Hill was chosen because of past problems involving the daughter of the PAVE Project coordinator, Paula Burkhard.

Now she is in charge of finding leaders who are compassionate, willing to speak up, and students who want to build a relationship with students with disabilities.

Paula Burckhard, Project Coordinator, PAVE Project) "I want to really impart to them that we are more alike than different. As these 6th, 7th and 8th graders move into the world, disabilities is just a natural part of our human existence and that it's really just a part of our diverse world."

Jim Hill along with Discovery Middle School in Fargo are the schools implementing this program.

It's funded by a grant given by the North Dakota Council on Developmental Disabilities.
