Girl Scouts organization fights bullying
DeKALB – Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois (GSNI) is looking for girls in grades 4–8 to take a stand against bullying at its Be Part of the Change workshop from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, April 26 at Huntley Middle School, 1515 S. Fourth St.
Girls will take part in hands-on activities such as making a peacemaker box and bracelet, showing love on a heart wall, and receive instruction in self-defense from trainer Kevin Engstrom. Breakout sessions for adults will be led by community experts where parents can safely discuss cyber bullying and how to identify if a child is a bully.
The workshop will also feature the local film premiere of “I Am the Music: A Rock Operetta.” The anti-bullying movie features a cast of more than 35 Girl Scouts, ages 7–17, from 23 cities around northern Illinois. The film takes on the tough subject of cyber bullying, cliques and mean girls.
