Asset Building Champions (ABC): Project Cornerstone trains and coaches adult volunteers to read children’s literature books and lead classroom activities related to bullying prevention and promoting positive peer interactions on a monthly basis. One of our major goals of the ABC program is to build developmental assets and create a common language within the entire school community around the issue of peer abuse. The ABC Program was started by our own Willow Glen Elementary School parent, Felecia Mulvany!
Los Dichos de la Casa: Project Cornerstone trains and coaches Spanish-speaking parents to read bilingual childrens literature in elementary school classrooms to both build assets with the students and to engage the parents as active members of the school community. “Dichos” are values-based proverbs that are central themes in many of the books and related lessons/activities. Adult volunteers read in Spanish with the classroom teachers or students reading the English translations.
