WonHeart Hosting Anti-Bully Program at Santa Maria Discovery Museum

WonHeart is pleased to announce the first of the Feel Good Friday’s series starting this Friday, April 18, at the Santa Maria Discovery Museum.

WonHeart will host a program based on self-esteem, celebrating how incredible each individual is and touch on “what is a bully?”

Bullying affects one in seven children yearly, and the effects are long lasting, leading to 160,000 students missing school to lasting effects that continue into adulthood such as domestic abuse and suicidal tendencies.

WonHeart has provided anti-bullying and peace programs throughout Santa Barbara County that are making an impact. We believe change starts with the individual. When that happens, people can help Start a Change Reaction to help one another.

Participants will learn important character-building skills through experiential and live music.

The program will be at the Santa Maria Discovery Museum at 11 a.m. Friday for children and parents.

Our vision is to strengthen community where everyone feels safe, loved and celebrated for who we are.

— Joelyn Lutz represents WonHeart.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
