About Challenge Day
The day-long Challenge Day experience is an experiential social and emotional learning program for Freshman and offers the class an opportunity to ignite a shift toward greater school connectedness, empathy, and inclusivity. Challenge Day is held in the gym feature music and interactive exercises, and are led by two energetic, relatable and highly trained facilitators.
The program goes beyond traditional anti-bullying efforts, building empathy and inspiring a school-wide movement of compassion and positive change. We address some common issues seen in most schools including cliques, gossip, rumors, negative judgments, teasing, harassment, isolation, stereotypes, intolerance, racism, sexism, bullying, violence, suicide, homophobia, hopelessness, apathy, and hidden pressures to create an image, achieve or live up to the expectations of others.
