On April 30, the Crescenta Valley Outreach of the Armenian Center will present “No Place for Bullies.”
The forum will discuss the issue of bullying in and out of school as well as cyber bullying. Members from youth and non-profit organizations, law enforcement, and the Glendale Unified School District will talk about how bullying affects children and what parents and the community can do.
“Our goal is to educate parents and acknowledge bullying,” said Harry Leon, chairperson for the event.
There are many ways children indicate that there is a bullying problem, Leon said. But sometimes they do not share what is going on with their parents.
“They may reveal it to other [adults] at youth centers or [teachers],” Leon said.
It is Leon’s hope that information shared will give parents a way of recognizing the early signs of bullying and what actions to take to support their child.
The Armenian Center is located at 2633 Honolulu Ave. Admission is free and refreshments will be served. The event is from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, contact Harry Leon at (818) 464-5870.
