Challenge Day goes to middle schools and high schools and they offer the students the opportunity to participate in a one day workshop where everyone feels safe, loved and validated.  It is an amazing experience.  They have appeared on Oprah, had a show on MTV and they were the subjects of an Academy Award winning documentary.  They are now international too.  If your child's school has not had a Challenge Day, check out their site to find out how to arrange one
