The Just Say Whoa® to Bullying
The Just Say Whoa® to Bullying program takes a unique approach to teaching bullying prevention by helping children to recognize and respect the differences in one another. By understanding that everyone has something valuable to offer, children learn acceptance, tolerance, respect and understanding of others.
By instilling these core values and encouraging good character, Just Say Whoa® to Bullying builds a foundation of understanding and promotes a positive social environment, which - in turn - fosters kindness and good citizenship.
In addition, this innovative program is the first of its kind t o teach bullying prevention using animal- assisted activities with miniature therapy horses. While often used to help teach children with learning disabilities, truancy, and behavioral issues, animal-assisted activities can also be used with mainstream children to capture their attention, teach to the moment and reinforce what they learn.
The original Just Say Whoa® to Bullying program was presented in the Tampa Bay area with Amos the Wonder Horse and in conjunction with the St. Petersburg Police Department. Amos is a miniature therapy horse that provides animal-assisted therapy services to hospitals and nursing facilities and is known for his work with the Harlem Globetrotters. He has been featured in National Geographic Kids magazine and books and has appeared on dozens of national and international television programs including the Today Show, Sabado Gigante, and Daytime.
