MBF Teen Safety Matters® – Middle School Edition is a comprehensive, evidence-informed prevention education program for middle school students in grades 6-8. The program educates and empowers teens and all relevant adults with information and strategies to prevent, recognize, and respond appropriately to bullying, cyberbullying, all types of abuse, relationship abuse, sex trafficking, digital abuse, and other digital dangers.
The program was developed WITH schools, not FOR schools, to make the best use of existing resources and ensure schools have effective programs that are easy to implement. It can be presented in three 45-minute lessons (or in six shorter lessons) by trained facilitators in classrooms. Facilitators present turnkey scripts along with engaging, interactive PowerPoints with lecture, group discussion, skills-practice activities, videos, and games.
Facilitators provide three 45-minute, age and developmentally appropriate lessons to each classroom using standardized Scripts and PowerPoint presentations which include information and fun and engaging videos, games, and activities for students. (Can also be delivered in six shorter lessons.)
