Dignity Act Program Support: Using the CEE Team Building Programs to Support the Dignity Act

The CEE challenge course and team building programs are powerful and proactive tools that can be used by schools to help students learn and practice pro-social skills that create a safe and supportive climate. These programs put a premium on relationships between members of the group and help to establish a sense of acceptance and belonging. Skills and issues addressed during our programs empower students to reflect on whether their behaviors create an effective, positive climate as well as to help them determine the behaviors that build an environment free of discrimination and harassment making everyone feel safe. These skills and issues include, creating a climate of respect and acceptance, understanding and appreciating differences, tolerance, compassion, patience, support and encouragement, positive attitude, humor and flexibility. Emphasis is placed on transferring these skills from the activities to the school environment.

These programs can take place at your school, at Madden Outdoor Education Center in Kent Cliffs, located just south of where the Taconic Parkway intersects Rt. 84 or on the BOCES campus in Yorktown Heights.
