Crown CARES - Creating A Respectful Environment in Society
The Crown CARES - Creating a Respectful Environment in Society is our international pageant platform. This is an extension of Crossroads youth program Crown CARES- Creating A Respectful Environment in Schools. The transition of this platform, from School to Society, is important. As we grow into adults we can take the same principles of the program - Kindness, Respect, Inclusion, Love, Care, Courage, and Friendship, and put them to use in various outlets of our lives. As adults, we have the ability to influence our youth, teach our peers, and set an example as the ultimate role model.
The Crown CARES (Creating A Respectful Environment in Schools and 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.
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 to 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.
