The Crown CARES
(Creating A Respectful Environment in Schools-Society)
CHECK OUT OUR RESOURCE PAGE FOR MORE INFORMATION ON BULLYING PREVENTION
The Crown CARES (Creating A Respectful Environment in Schools/Society) program is specifically designed for volunteers, pageant systems and peer ambassadors who wish to promote awareness as a platform on the epidemic of bullying in schools, to cultivate a safe environment and most importantly teach skills to develop social responsibility in school-age children, youth and teens and is modeled after the Unite Against Bullying Project. You may look under the "Unite" tab for all your resources for bullying prevention and handouts.
Designed to raise awareness of positive social behaviors, bullying and harassment prevention, and to give practical solutions, the easy how to manual, provided to the participants, provides the general knowledge, research, resources and practical advice necessary to incorporate steps and measures for your program to effectively promote awareness of bullying prevention, harassment and creating a safe school environment.
The Crown CARES program outlines the definition and simple solutions of the age-old problem of bullying. While there are no grandiose or magical explanations, intellectually understanding the importance of bullying prevention as well as developing and maintaining a program in or out of school is what will set you at the forefront of your competition and place you in a reputable place in your community. It is our responsibility as adults, community leaders, caretakers and human beings to nurture the delicacy of our youth. We can only accomplish this by ongoing improvements and continuing education with the youth’s safety as the principal purpose.

The Starfish Story
The following is one of my favorite stories (author unknown) that never fails to inspire me in sustaining my belief in what I do as a Christ-follower, regardless of how insignificant it may seem to the eyes of others.
While walking along a beach, an elderly gentleman saw someone in the distance leaning down, picking something up and throwing it into the ocean.
As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, picking up starfish one by one and tossing each one gently back into the water.
He came closer still and called out, “Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?”
The young man paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean.”
The old man smiled, and said, “I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?”
To this, the young man replied, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”
Upon hearing this, the elderly observer commented, “But, young man, do you not realise that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can’t possibly make a difference!”
The young man listened politely. Then he bent down, picked up another starfish, threw it into the back into the ocean past the breaking waves and said, “It made a difference for that one.”
