 Huddle Up Bullying Prevention Program

The Toronto Argonauts’ Huddle Up Bullying Prevention Program, presented by Tim Hortons, is an all-encompassing opportunity for a school population to focus on the impact they can have on bullying and improving the culture of their school. Since its inception in 2001, the program has visited over 600,000 students ages 8-18 empowering them to make a difference with the issue of bullying through positive messaging and speaking up when something doesn’t feel right.

The program sees Toronto Argonauts players, cheerleaders and program staff working together to make schools safe. The program messages are tailored to students that are involved in the transition stages of elementary school and high school, Grades 6-10. Through the collaboration with the Canadian Safe School Network and PrevNet the program has been able to continuously adapt to the changing world of school bullying.

 The Huddle Up Bullying Prevention program structure is:

  • Committee Meeting 45 minutes-(Oct-January) Students from various facets of bullying are empowered by the Argonauts to lead a message before, during and after the assembly aligning with the messages of the Huddle UP program.
  • Program Assembly 45-60 minutes– (January-April) The assembly consisting of powerful personal testimony from a player, cheerleader and the program founder, combined with your student committee’s messages. This assembly has important messaging to assist you in improving your school culture. (For larger school populations an Additional Assembly can be discussed)

Program resources include:

  • Posters for display around the school
  • Huddle UP  t-shirts for your committee members (10-12)
  • Electronic resources to assist your committee and their teacher/parent advisor through the duration of the program.
