Rick Shaw, President and CEO of Awareity, has been selected as a bullying prevention panelist for the upcoming National Youth-At-Risk Conference held March 2-5, 2014 in Savannah, GA. 

Bullying prevention is one of the most pressing topics in education today. With many instances of school violence linked to bullying, schools are actively seeking practical solutions that can curtail this epidemic. This panel invites conference attendees to participate in a discussion with three very different and unique professionals. Moderated by Dr. Ivan Watts, this panel is set to push the boundaries of typical bullying prevention and propose fresh ideas for solutions in schools.

Shaw joins the panel to share expert advice and evidence-based research from Awareity’s work with schools, implementing proven solutions for student safety, bullying prevention, incident reporting, risk management, threat assessment and more.

Now in its 25th year, the National Youth-At-Risk Conference trains adults who serve youth to create safe, healthy, caring and intellectually empowering educational environments that foster the well-being of all children and adolescents. Participants learn about current research-based educational programs and strategies, which empower young people to overcome at-risk conditions that may threaten their safety, health, emotional needs, and academic achievement. Participants also gain knowledge of proactive solutions and practices for meeting the serious challenges faced by youth today such as school violence, poverty, learning difficulties, underachievement, achievement gaps, illiteracy, boredom, apathy, low expectations, misbehavior, dropout, drugs, bullying, gangs, teen pregnancy, sexual harassment, racism and dysfunctional families.
