The Ophelia Project is proud to present its second annual national conference, Creating Safe Social Climates: It's About YOUth!, to be held October 23-24, 2006 in Evanston, Illinois, at the Hotel Orrington, just minutes from downtown Chicago.

Founded as a catalyst for positive change within schools and communities nationwide, The Ophelia Project is committed to helping youth form healthy peer relationships while creating safe social climates for all.

The Ophelia Project defines a safe social climate as one that does not accept taunting, exclusion, gossip, rumor-spreading, covert aggression or bullying as normal behaviors or rites of passage.

In order to successfully create safe social climates, every community member must make a commitment to empower each other, protect and respect one another and hold each other accountable for their actions.

This conference will raise awareness about peer aggression, share best practices from the nation's leading experts in the field, and inspire participants to design their own collaborative initiatives to create safe social climates in their schools and communities.
