Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia and Peach State Health Plan are teaming up to help stamp out bullying across Georgia through the Girl Scout “Be a Friend First” program.
Representatives from Peach State Health Plan presented a $10,000 check for the anti-bullying program on July 30.
Be a Friend First is a program geared toward middle-school-aged girls that guides them in building healthy relationship skills and facilitates open discussion and anti-bullying role play.
BFF gives girls the tools to feel safe at school, online and everywhere in between. BFF teaches girls to recognize bullying, how to resolve conflicts, boost their confidence, to be a better friend, to have better friends and to find the right words to stop bullying — once and for all.
“Girl Scout values are based on friendship, individual responsibility and mutual respect,” said Cheryl Legette, chief operating officer of Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia. “These values leave no room for bullying behavior.”
