Steps to Respect training coming up in November

The Nevada County Superintendent of Schools and Child Advocates of Nevada County are recruiting adult volunteers to teach the evidence-based, anti-bullying curriculum, "Steps To Respect," to students in fourth- and fifth-grade classrooms in 11 area schools. Volunteers will be trained and equipped to teach, with a partner, a one-hour scripted lesson once a week for 10 weeks, with the classroom teacher present and participating. Current volunteers report that students are engaged and eager to learn this crucial information. Volunteers can be trained from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Nov. 12, at the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools office.

Fingerprint/background checks and a current TB test are required and provided at no cost. For more information or to sign up, call Linda Collins at 530-265-9550, x 237, or email lindac@caofnc.org.
