(WTNH) - Rachel Scott was the first person killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. Her acts of kindness and compassion coupled with the contents of her six diaries have become the foundation for one of the most life-changing school programs in America.
Rachel’s Challenge Objectives for Schools:
* Create a safe learning environment for all students by re-establishing civility and delivering proactive antidotes to school violence and bullying.
* Improve academic achievement by engaging students’ hearts, heads and hands in the learning process.
* Provide students with social/emotional education that is both colorblind and culturally relevant.
* Train adults to inspire, equip and empower students to affect permanent positive change.
