Olweus Bullying Prevention Program – May 1

Posted by Pennsylvania Department of Health on February 12, 2019

Please see this special time-limited opportunity for Community Youth Organizations in Pennsylvania!

The Pennsylvania Department of Health recently posted a Request for Application (RFA #67-74) that provides funding for the implementation and sustainability of the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP) for community youth organizations (CYOs) in Pennsylvania. Since we all know bullying can happen anywhere children and youth interact – in or out of school, in person or online – leaders and volunteers of youth-serving organizations can play a key role in bullying prevention and intervention.

This grant will provide training for staff to become certified trainers in the OBPP, implement the OBPP in their location and provide support, resources and technical assistance to ensure fidelity to the program.

Award Amount: up to $60,000.00

Grant Agreement Term: January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2021
Optional Pre-Application Conference: April 3, 2019 at 9:00 AM at the Department of Health
Applications Due: May 1, 2019 at 2:30pm

To learn about the OBPP for CYOs, you are invited to attend a webinar:

Date: February 12, 2019
Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM ET
Registration: http://olweus.sites.clemson.edu/webinar-reg/register.php

A link to an archived version of this webinar will be sent to all those who register.

As you already know, the OBPP is a framework that can be used in any setting that children and youth attend on a regular basis. The goals of the OBPP for CYOs are to reduce and prevent bullying and improve peer relations in community settings.

We encourage you to spread the word. Please share this information any colleagues in Pennsylvania who may benefit from this opportunity.
