This is a school-based project on High Point Regional High School's program called "Heroes and Cool Kids". High school students travel to their sending districts to speak, in three visits, about decision making involving life, violence/bulling, and drugs/alcohol. This is the second visit, where the students share personal stories about bullying. They demonstrate the skills needed to cope and handle these situations, and share their main objective, which is "to change the world".
