Join us as we honor The Camel Project's Community Champion 2019 for their work to end the scourge of bullying in our schools and neighborhoods.

The Community Champion Award recognizes a school,  community youth organization or company. Our goals are to recognize, honor, and celebrate those who have impacted students and the community in new, innovative ways. This award is to acknowledge your school or community who has offered time and leadership to improve their community.

All proceeds from The Community Champions Gala will be used to enhance current and develop new Stop Bullying – I Care student programs in underserved and economically challenged communities.

   The Why: 

• 73% of students by high school, have seen or been the target of bullying CDC Center for Disease Control under Dept of Health & Human Services
• When a child commits suicide because he or she can’t stand the bullying, it’s called bullycide, a leading causes of death in children under 14 years old, 4,584 in 2014. i-SAFE Foundation.
• “Over 50% of adolescents and teens have been bullied online..” *
• 21 week of 2018, 23 school shootings where someone was hurt or killed. That averages out to more than 1 shooting a week. CNN
• 113 people have been killed or injured in school shootings in the United States. BBC

We are losing a generation of kids. To combat these facts, we look to bring attention to and highlight the current programs available in our community. Also, to discover and define the areas we are missing or can be stronger. We are seeking to highlight and share student-centric programs: that use experiential learning and that educates the whole student. The whole student approach includes the community’s policies, practices, and standards that ensure each individual is healthy, protected, engaged, empowered, and challenged. We strive for an equal balance between academics, social and emotional learning, and relationship skills. In developing relationship skills, we increase and encourage characteristics like empathy, creativity, kindness, to nurture compassionate members of our society. An understanding of the impact of words and behaviors on others, naturally lead to a higher standard of personal conduct and ethics.

“The aggressive learned behavior of Bullying does not discriminate. It hurts everyone no matter age, gender, religion, social-economical, race or ethnicity.”
--Pamela S Gockley
Executive Director and Founder of The Camel Project
