As TYWLS Bronx grows as a high school, new traditions are added to our school year. For the second year in a row, 9th graders were invited to participate in Challenge Day - an inspirational day promoting self-worth and anti-bullying.
From the Challenge Day website:
"Our programs go beyond traditional anti-bullying efforts, building empathy and igniting a movement of compassion and positive change.Challenge Day's mission is to provide youth and their communities with experiential workshops and programs that demonstrate the possibility of love and connection through the celebration of diversity, truth and full expression.Our 6 1/2-hour Challenge Day program is designed for 100 students. Our program is created to build connection and empathy, and to fulfill our vision that every child lives in a world where they feel safe, loved, and celebrated. Challenge Day is more than a one-day program. Our programs go beyond traditional anti-bullying efforts, building empathy and igniting a movement of compassion and positive change, known as the Be the Change movement."
