National Voices for Equality, Education and Enlightenment (NVEEE) to Host 3rd Annual “Not on My Watch” VIP Reception Benefiting Bullying and Suicide Prevention Efforts
Date:11/19/2013

Miami, FL (PRWEB) November 19, 2013

During National Anti-Bullying Week, National Voices for Equality, Education, and Enlightenment (NVEEE) will honor community members dedicated to making a difference in the lives of youth and families at their 3rd Annual “Not on My Watch” VIP Reception. This reception is attended by elected officials, business leaders, educators, community partners and parents who support bullying prevention efforts in the South Florida community and beyond.

Sponsored by community partners Kaufman, Rossin & Co and Printhouse USA, the event takes place on Friday, November 22, 2013 at Brasileiro Restaurant (801 Brickell Bay Drive, Miami, FL 33131) from 7:00p.m - 11:00p.m and will include a live auction and special performances by NVEEE Teen Spokesperson and Peace Ambassador, Katie Steel and a dance performance by NVEEE Peace Ambassador Jordynn Lurie. For more information about NVEEE visit http://www.NVEEE.org, or to purchase tickets ($25.00) visit http://tinyurl.com/mxbefzk.

The reception will be emceed by NBC Investigative Reporter, Willard Sheppard. 2013 Honorees include: George Castrataro of the Law Offices of George Castrataro, Lori Scott of “The Achievables” , Miami Beach City Commissioner Michael Gongora, New York Times Bestselling Author Laura Duksta, alongside community media partners She Magazine and Mark’s List.

The organization is excited to welcome Dr. Bober as a special guest speaker. “Bullying remains a complex social phenomenon, which has an impact on virtually all aspects of society, said Psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Bober, Medical Director of Pediatric Psychiatry at Joe Dimaggio Children’s Hospital. “We must continue to pursue evidence based interventions and public policy changes to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all of our children.”

The purpose of the reception is to continue fundraising efforts which allows NVEEE to sponsor bullying and harassment prevention workshops throughout Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Education is an essential component of how NVEEE engages families and communities in moving towards social change. In four years, NVEEE has reached over 15,000 students, parents, educators and administrators through its signature “Not on My Watch” School-wide Bullying & Harassment Prevention Program, and was recently featured on an episode of ABC’s "Secret Millionaire" for their work in the community.

Their signature “Not On My Watch” Bullying & Harassment Prevention Program teaches students social skills, how to model specific actions, and demonstrates ways of being and behaving that can empower students to reduce peer-harassment, as well as reduce self-harm. “Not On My Watch” serves as a catalyst to support peer-led intervention to alter school cultures around bullying. Additionally, Workshop Surveys are used to assess the school's and community's specific needs, and to capture data unique to each school’s social and ecological frameworks -- a practice recommended in leading bullying prevention research.

This work would not be possible without the support of continued sponsors including: Kaufman, Rossin & Co., Printhouse USA, Erin Mia Milchman, Brasileiro Restaurant, Miami Events Photobooth, Sky High Design, Freedom Concierge Services, Tito’s Vodka and Allure Rejuvenation and Anti-Aging Spa.
