Collaboration with WWE:
In 2016, WWE and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America announced a multi-year, national partnership to support the Be a STAR bullying prevention program and help create a safe after-school environment for today’s youth. In 2017, WWE launched a new collaboration between the Boys & Girls Clubs, Be a STAR and the Yale Center For Emotional Intelligence focused on giving students the tools they need to drive effective learning, decision making, creativity, relationships and mental health. By developing each child’s emotional intelligence, children can become happier, healthier and more compassionate – leading to a drastic increase in the ability to manage conflict and reducing the amount of bullying instances. The goal of the new Be a STAR curriculum focused on social and emotional learning is to ultimately reduce incidents of bullying and provide a safe environment for kids to learn and grow. The new Be a STAR curriculum is available to more than 4,300 Boys & Girls Clubs across the U.S.
