Parents for P.R.I.D.E. (Neighbors United for Compassion) is organized to promote healthy practices in community youth activities. Our goal is to increase the awareness of bullying and to reduce all forms of negative behavior involving both adults and children in youth sports, after school activities, and anywhere in our neighborhoods or electronically.
The PRIDE philosophy focuses on the core principles of Protect, Respect, Influence, Develop and Encourage. We Protect our children, Respect each other, offer positive Influence to the children, help Develop the proper fundamentals, Encourage teamwork,and teach kindness and compassion.
We work with community members, community leaders, community organizations, schools, coaches, parents, and children to present positive behavioral environments where all may learn new skills, gain self-confidence, and have fun. The integration of community activities and school environment that is bully free ultimately leads to success inside and outside of the classroom.
Resulting in safer communities and neighborhoods that are free from alcohol, tobacco, other drugs and violence.
Thank you to the Mars Area Public Library Board Members for their volunteer work they provide to our organization. Visit the Mars Area Public Library website for tools that inform, inspire and create possibilities.
Mr. Mark Hart, Director, Security and Safety Programs, West Mifflin Area School District
Our goal in creating, operating and maintaining a Security and Safety program here at WMASD is to ensure that we identify all associated security and safety risks that are present in today’s schools . Our partnership with the Parent for Pride organization has allowed us to bring a “awareness” to the staff, students and community of the potential issues related to bullying and the effects that this can have on the student and community population. This initiative has allowed us to identify and implement all of our “Bullying Prevention” K-12 programs that we have in place under one “No Bully Zone” program.
