Project Connect

Project Connect joins students, schools, and communities to make a powerful statement about uniting against bullying.

The process is simple. Students write a message on a strip of ORANGE construction paper.

The strips are then stapled or glued together, resulting in one long, connection that visually represents the power of uniting for a common cause.

Use one of these two options, or create your own!

  1. Ask students to write what they do to help make their school a safer place for their peers.
    The message is this: while one person can speak out against bullying, our message is much stronger when we come together to make a difference.
  2. Ask students to write a quality that makes them unique and proud of who they are as individuals.
    The message is this: even though we are all different, we are all a part of this community.

Once individual classrooms have connected their links, they can join other classrooms, until all classrooms have united to create one colossal connection representing the school.

The links can then be displayed in the classroom or in the school hallway. A creative way to display is to spell out the word “UNITE” or your school name.
