Girl Scouts of Nassau County

On June 14, 2010, Girl Scouts of Nassau County will shine a spotlight on this critical issue by bringing together girls, parents, volunteers and community stakeholders in a Call to Action: Taking on Bullies, Cyberbullies and Peer to Peer Aggression meeting from 7:00pm – 9:00pm at the Girl Scouts of Nassau County Service Center located at 110 Ring Road West in Garden City.

“Girl Scouts has always advocated for the physical, social and emotional well-being of girls,” says Donna Ceravolo, Executive Director and CEO of Girl Scouts of Nassau County. “We hope this event will unite Girl Scouts, their families, and their communities across Nassau County against bullying. We are committed to creating a safe space for every child in cyberspace, in school, and in the community.”

The event will feature author and educator Jessie Klein, assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice at Adelphi University. Ms. Klein is author of the book, “The Bully”, not yet released, and a past administrator, social worker and conflict resolution coordinator of New York City Schools. Dr. Klein holds a Ph.D. in Sociology and Master’s Degree in Sociology and Education.

Joining Dr. Klein on the panel will be Nassau County Police Officer John Dockswell. Officer Dockswell is a former teacher who became a police officer in 1994. PO Dockswell has delivered more than 300 talks on cyberbullying and sexting across Long Island in both public and private schools since September 2009. According to PO Dockswell cyberbullying and sexting is a problem in every school district on Long Island.
