Peer Ambassador Program

GAB Peer Ambassadors have been busy, busy, busy!  These remarkably inspirational students have taken the Peer Ambassador Program to a whole other level with their impressive original ideas, volunteer recruitment, spreading the word about GAB, and utilizing the tools they've learned to help parents and peers.  

What have the Peer Ambassador's been up to?
  • The Peer Ambassador's had a booth at the Greendale High School extra-curricular activities, sports, clubs, and organizations introduction night for incoming freshmen.  They handed out GAB bracelets, pamphlets, and informed students and parents about GAB. GAB was the only outside organization invited that night and resulted in retaining one of the highest amount of participant sign-ups!  See photos from event here
  • Peer Ambassador bonding dinner where they discussed upcoming projects and program ideas.  Read a blog from Sheridan, a GAB Peer Ambassador about her experience that night. Sheridan's Blog
 Peer Ambassador projects in motion:
  • The Luminescence Project which teaches people how to overcome their own personal darkness by illuminating their "life light" within.
    • The Soar Above Mission 
    • Life Jars Project
    • Night Light Project
  • "It's Only Temporary" Gabtivity Tattoos
  • GAB Puppet Shows 
  • Broken Marbles Project
  • Posting colorful posters around school that have positive definitions and affirmations such as "Have Fun!", "We Are Humane", "Don't Be a Bully", "Be an Up Stander", "Don't be a By Stander", "You Look Better When You Smile More", and many more.
GAB Partners with Children's Hospital of Wisconsin!

Generations Against Bullying is proud to announce our partnership with Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. Children's Hospital of Wisconsin offers unique, e-learning courses for students in grades K4 through 8th called ACT NOW! These engaging programs are fun for kids, and will help keep classrooms and schools safe by creating a bully-free environment. The ACT NOW! Program was developed in collaboration with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and aligned with the National Health Educations Standards, and addresses all types of bullying, including cyber bullying and sexual harassment in the middle school. Combined with Generations Against Bullying's community outreach ability, and our high school Peer Ambassador Program, this powerful partnership will offer a unique combination unlike any other in the nation. "Together we will change the culture of learning".

GAB Thanks Its Guest Speakers!

William Henderson, former Green Bay Packer

In the beginning of December, William traveled to seven schools throughout Wisconsin as a guest speaker for GAB and did a meet-and-greet. William kindly shared his life experiences and motivational words that inspired the students.

Clay Iverson, National and International Motivational Speaker, Varsity Football Coach

Clay was an inspiration to everyone when he was a guest speaker at the Mukwonago Movie Night. He shared his past personal experiences of being both bullied and as a bully himself.  Clay has been an educator and football coach in the state of Wisconsin for over 14 years where he has earned numerous awards and credentials.  He also spoke to a young hockey team and their parents to help them get a better idea of what it really means to "love" one another and how to be a team player.
