What schools are saying about GAPRA:
We LOVE GAPRA‘s When Girls Hurt Girls® program at our school! This program has been the missing piece we’ve never had (and always needed)!
The behaviors in this program are more succinctly defined than I’ve ever seen, and the materials are so easy to use.
This program is enabling me to make a real difference in how my students interact with each other.

GAPRA‘s presentation at the MAESP conference is the best bullying program I’ve attended. It focuses on helping the target, not stopping the bully.
