Every year, CJCC hosts Kindness Matters Week for anti-bullying and anti-hazing awareness. During the week, the center hosts movies, group discussions, and activities geared toward highlighting the importance of how we treat one another and the lasting impacts of bullying and hazing. The highlight of the week, the Kindness Matters Carnival, provided fun activities such as inflatable water slides, karaoke, temporary tattoos, volleyball, and concessions. Wellness and TEAP even provided a customizable metal jewelry booth and a drunk goggle test.

In addition to the week’s activities, staff and students in carpentry, building construction technology (BCT) and welding even showed a group of community interns the kinds of skills they learn in their trades with hands-on activities taught by the students. The interns also learned about CJCC’s commitment to helping the community with a volunteer activity performed with Student Leadership at Heritage Park Rehabilitation in Roy.

Kindness Matters Week helped the students understand the importance of inclusion and the negative effects of bullying and hazing. While the center recognizes this week annually, the students and staff will continue talking about anti-bullying and anti-hazing and putting new positive center culture initiatives into practice all year-round.
