Our Educations

All our education origins from Friends, Sweden. Our focus is to provide knowledge and tools to adults in schools, sports clubs and other organizations to support their bullying prevention work.

Our stand-alone sessions are generally 60-90 minutes, but just like with the 3-year Friends program, we can tailor and customize most of them to fit your organization’s unique situation and needs.

Contact us at info.colorado@friends.se and we will look into how we best can support you in your efforts to prevent bullying.

All adults working at the club, and all athletes 7 years and up are participating in the survey, and the educational sessions are tailored to your organization’s unique needs and situation.
