TOHS Peer Mentoring Program Receives Faces of Change Award
Congratulations to the Thousand Oaks High School Peer Mentoring Program for receiving a Faces of Change Award for their peer support and choosing kindness efforts! This award is part of the 4th Annual Unity Awards presented by the Youth Advisory Boards of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. Ashley Cooper, Coordinator of the Peer Mentoring program is receiving the award at a special ceremony today, May 30th in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The Unity Awards ceremony, first held in 2015, is an evening of celebration to gather and recognize those who are helping to create a world without bullying — whether it’s building awareness of bullying prevention, inspiring and empowering others to take positive action, or advocating for those who need support.
Nominations come in from around the country and have included teachers who have touched the lives of students, individuals or groups who have been active in their communities, and those who simply made someone feel that they were not alone.
The Faces of Change Awards are presented to individuals or groups making a difference in Minnesota, where PACER’ National Bullying Prevention Center is located, and in the Los Angeles area, where NBPC maintains an office.
Congratulations Thousand Oaks High School – we are proud of our Lancers' kindness!
