Event Description:

Rachel's Challenge is coming to Fairview High School on Wednesday, January 8, 2014.

(For other schools interested please read below and contact listed personnel)

Rachel's Challenge exists to equip and inspire individuals to replace acts of violence, bullying, and negativity with acts of respect, kindness, and compassion. This program is based upon the theories and ethics of Rachel Joy Scott, the first victim of the Columbine High School massacre, which occurred in Littleton, Colorado, on April 20, 1999. Rachel's story provides a simple, yet powerful example of how small acts of kindness and acceptance motivate us to consider our relationships with the people we come in contact with every day.

Our goal is to start a chain reaction of kindness and compassion.

On January 8, students in grades 9-12 will see a multi-media presentation led by the Rachel's Challenge organization.

Then, at630 P.M. that evening, another presentation will be held for the parents/guardians, and other members of the community, with the same goal to positively shape the community.

Fact Sheet

Rachels Challenge exists to equip and inspire individuals to replace acts of violence, bullying, and negativity with acts of respect, kindness, and compassion. Rachels Challenge is based on the life and writings of Rachel Joy Scott who was the first victim of the Columbine school shootings in 1999. Through her example, Rachels Challenge is making a positive impact in the lives of millions of people every year.

Superintendents, principals, teachers, parents, and students bring Rachels Challenge into their schools because of escalating problems such as bullying, student isolation, teen suicide, discrimination, school violence, and increased disciplinary actions. Through powerful presentations, trainings, community events, and professional development,Rachels Challenge provides the sustainable solution.

Rachels inspiring story provides a simple, yet powerful example of how small acts of kindness and acceptance motivate us to consider our relationships with the people we come in contact with every day. Rachels Challenge renews our hope that our life has meaning and purpose. Rachels story gives us permission to start our own chain reaction of kindness and compassion, which positively affects the climate in our schools and communities.

Scope of Effectiveness

A few weeks after the tragedy, Darrell Scott, Rachels father, spoke to a Congressional House Judiciary Committee regarding issues of school violence. His speech has become one of the most widely read on the internet. Shortly afterwards, he founded Rachels Challenge, a bullying and violence abatement program. More than 2.5 million students annually experience Rachels Challenge and have the opportunity to accept the challenges, modeled after Rachels life and writings.

The universal message of kindness and compassion told by Rachels story has been heard by students in several other countries. Since inception, over 17 million people have heard Rachels story in live settings around the world, at least eight school shootings have been prevented, and over 500 suicides have been averted. The Scott family and other Rachels Challenge certified presenters have reached millions moreon popular media outlets like CNN, Fox News, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Larry King Live, Oprah, Dateline, OReilly Factor, Hannity and Colmes and numerous others. Mr. Scott has also authored three books, including the bestseller Rachels Tears.

Darrell meets regularly with politicians and educators, and is also a keynote speaker at many large educational venues. He met with President Bill Clinton on two occasions and President George W. Bush has written a personal letter recommending Rachels Challenge.
