A safe and supportive environment where a culture of inclusion and respect is established and maintained to promote cultural awareness.
Whether a student is escaping abuse at home, discrimination due to sexuality or race, or overcoming trauma, teachers, and schools could provide much more beyond academic learning. In school, safe spaces offer therapy, support, and a place of refuge for many, which could make learning possible.
WeighOut ministries offer this safe space for middle school students in HSD2—“The Falcons Nest.” The Falcons Nest is a space where students can feel safe from bullying, social pressure, judgment, and possible intimidation. Through the safety of this space students will grow in trust, confidence, self-awareness, conflict resolution, character development, and experience emotional growth.
