Each year, OSLC requests each school to raise a minimum of $250 for a charitable organization.
OSLC’s 2016 Charity of Choice is Canadian Red Cross.
The Canadian Red Cross’ Beyond the Hurt program supports a school or organization-wide approach to preventing bullying and building empathy and respect.
Beyond the Hurt is based on the belief that all youth–those targeted, those who bully, and bystanders–have a critical role in preventing bullying.
Most people involved in the bullying dynamic are bystanders, silently watching from the sidelines. Beyond the Hurt gives youth and adults the tools to take a stand to stop bullying before it starts. It engages student leaders in facilitating bullying prevention workshops and modeling positive and respectful relationships to grade 6-12 students.
