Davidson Service Board, a group of high schoolers working with Davidson College students, will host a free program called “Breaking Barriers” on Saturday night, Dec. 8, mixing food, fun and messages about bullying and suicide prevention. The party runs Saturday from 6:30 to 9pm at Woodlawn School, 135 Woodlawn School Loop, off Presbyterian Road in Mooresville.
The evening will include free pizza and drinks, pickup sports and other games, and prizes. A few speakers will talk about their experiences with bullying and suicide, and students will present a skit depicting common high school bullying scenarios. Here’s more from the board:
There will be pick-up sporting events and team-building activities. High school students will be encouraged to interact and meet new people. The event is meant to be a night for socializing and having fun with food and friends. Please attend on Saturday and bring as many friends as possible. Students from surrounding areas are all encouraged to come.
The Davidson Service Board consists of high school students from local schools who identify and solve issues relating to teenagers within the community. This semester, board members have chosen bullying and suicide as prominent issues that need to be addressed.
