Webinar on the At-Risk Meal Program

Webinar on the At-Risk Meal ProgramTo register, please visit:


By the time the school bell rings, children are often hungry – making it hard for them to be fully engaged in afterschool program activities. Afterschool programs have limited funds, which makes it difficult to serve food.

The At-Risk Afterschool Meal Program provides reimbursement funds for snacks or suppers served in afterschool programs located in low-income school districts. The At-Risk Meal Program is a program of the US Department of Agriculture and the NJ Department of Agriculture.

Webinar Information

Learn what the At-Risk Meal Program is, how your program can participate, and how umbrella sponsorship works.

Afterschool program directors and staff from Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Salem Counties.

Evidence-based Anti-Bullying Programs:
What We Can Learn from Finland

A conversation between Christina Salmivalli and Gil Noam

11:30am- 1pm Eastern, 10:30am – 12pm Central, 9:30am – 11am Mountain, 8:30am – 10am Pacific

New Directions for Youth Development
 recently published an issue entitled “Evidence-Based Bullying Prevention Programs for Children and Youth” with leading researchers, clinicians, and educators showcasing effective interventions against bullying. The issue was edited by Drs. Dagmar Strohmeier and Gil G. Noam.We are happy to invite you to a discussion with one of the authors, Professor Christina Salmivalli from the University of Turku in Finland. Dr. Salmivalli is one of the foremost experts in anti-bullying programs in schools. Her intervention, which highlights the importance of the bystanders, is used in the entire country of Finland and has shown to be very effective. Her methods are very rigorous (including randomized trials), and her experience training school staff is extensive. We can learn a great deal from her work and experiences in the United States. Given her leadership role in the field of bullying and bullying prevention, we decided to organize this webinar around her work and her contribution to New Directions for Youth Development.

In this 90-minute webinar Dr. Salmivalli and Dr. Gil Noam will conduct a dialogue about the topic and will invite webinar participants to ask questions and provide comments. Please join us for this important topic, especially at a time when all but one of the states in the U. S. have passed anti-bullying legislation and require a new way of thinking about the protection of children and adolescents in school and out-of-school time.


Christina Salmivalli is a professor of psychology at the University of Turku and director of the KiVa antibullying program.

Gil G. Noam is the Founder and Director of the Program in Education, Afterschool & Resiliency (PEAR) and Associate Professor at Harvard University and McLean Hospital.
