This year’s Annual State Conference will feature a presentation by Scott Harvey entitled “I Am Someone”, along with an updates on D.A.R.E. America and the OK2SAY program.
I Am Someone
I Am Someone helps participants understand the different forms of bullying. The presentation shows how technology has changed the impact of bullying over the past 10 years and will help the participants become more familiar with the most popular social media platforms and how students are using them. It will also help in understanding the importance of moving from an offender-based to a victim-based mindset when it comes to dealing with bullying and discover the importance of being Someone in the students’ lives.

OK2SAY is a program designed to empower Michigan students, parents, school personnel, community mental health service programs, and law enforcement to share and respond to student safety threats. The goal is to stop harmful behavior before it occurs by encouraging students to report threatening behavior to caring adult authorities who can help.
