Known worldwide as the "Ambassadors of Goodwill"™, the iconic Harlem Globetrotters are debuting a new community outreach program, "The ABCs of Bullying Prevention," in an effort to impact schools and communities around the world.
The Globetrotters designed the program in coordination with the National Campaign to Stop Violence (NCSV). The program focuses on Action, Bravery, and Compassion, comprising the ABCs. The program targets 6-12 year-old kids and involves Globetrotter players discussing the three key words in the ABCs and tools that kids can use on a daily basis to reduce bullying. The Globetrotters equate what it means to be part of a team to how kids can offer support to one another to help stop bullying.
Hammer Harrison will be presenting this at Windy Hills Elementary School Monday, March 25 at 2:15 located at: 4211 20th Avenue in Kearney. Contact Mary Fruhling for details at: 308-698-8220.
The important message of bullying and violence prevention is conveyed with participation from the kids – and the team's signature ball handling skills and humor – for a well-balanced program that informs and entertains.
