Texans mascot TORO and team players will visit 30 different Houston area schools this school year.
The Houston Texans announced the launch of their school anti-bullying program, which will begin Monday, October 3rd.
The program is called, “TORO Takes the Bull Out of Bullying,” and includes a 45-minute assembly, an activity book for each student and additional prizes for the kids.
The first installment of the program will be Monday, October 3rd, when Texans RG AJ Cann joins TORO at Blue Ridge Elementary School in Houston.
The program teaches kids what to do if they are being bullied, or if someone they know is being bullied, by using B.U.L.L. – Be yourself, Use your voice, Leave, Look out for others.
During this school year, the program will make appearances in 30 different Houston area schools, reaching more than 20,000 students. In the program’s ten year history, it has made a positive impact on over 200,000 Houston area children.
Members of the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts can earn an anti-bullying patch by attending an assembly or by completing the program virtually at www.houstontexans.com/Bullying.
