OHS students participate in Rachel's Challenge Chain Reaction activityOswego High School students in grades 9-12 recently had the opportunity to participate in the Chain Reaction Program provided by Rachel’s Challenge. Chain Reaction is a transformational day of fun, leadership, and power that can change the way people view one another.
The goal of Chain Reaction is to help stop bullying, violence and alienation that are parts of the school experience for millions of young people every day. Through a variety of games, trust-building activities, and presentations, OCSD students were given a unique opportunity to see themselves and the people around them “through a new set of eyes.”
Rachel’s Challenge is a nonprofit organization dedicated to equipping and empowering students and adults to sustain a positive culture change in their schools and communities by starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion; based on the life and writings of Rachel Scott, the first person killed in the Columbine High School shootings on April, 20 1999. Since its inception, over 23 million people have heard Rachel’s story in live settings worldwide.
