The Prescott Valley School's Youth Chamber club has kicked off its Anti-Bullying Project for 2013.

The 47 students in Bill Suedmeyer's Service Learning class and Youth Chamber club are researching the topic of student bullying. They then will present to their peers a comprehensive workshop about the sensitive and vital subject. After the workshop is given to PVS students, it will be available to local schools and service groups through the PVS Youth Chamber Speakers' Bureau.

On Saturday, Oct. 19, the students conducted a fundraising car wash at the PV Big O Tires to collect money for their new Anti-Bullying T-shirts and various presentation materials. It was a rousing success thanks to the people at Big O, the hardworking students, and generous local residents.

The new T-shirts will have a large red stop sign on the front, along with the project title, club's name, and dates of the project. The back of the shirt will feature a quote from Dr. Suess that reads: "Be yourself, because the people that mind don't matter, and the people that matter don't mind."

The workshop, to be presented in November, will cover 10 issues, including why students are bullied, how students are bullied, what victims can do, why bullies start bullying, how bullies can change, what bystanders must do, and what can adults and schools do to deal with bullying.

Any youth group or adult service group that desires more information may call PVS at 928-772-8744 and ask for Suedmeyer. This project is an example of the Youth Chamber's slogan, "Youth who care!"
