Happy Bear

Are you interested in helping children?  FSGC is currently looking for someone as an on-call substitute to be Happy Bear and go with one of our CPSTs  to schools and organizations to present the Happy Bear Program.  Happy Bear goes to the schools on Tuesday and Wednesday each week from the 3rd week of August to the last week of April or 1st week of May. 

For over 25 years, Family Service and Guidance Center has been taking its cuddly costumed character Happy Bear into classrooms, school assemblies and a variety of other settings to teach children about a subject that is not easy to talk about: sexual abuse.

With the help of his "teacher" – a highly-trained FSGC professional – and the eager children attending the program, Happy Bear learns about "good touch" (such as a pleasant hug), "bad touch" (hitting), and "mixed-up touch" (sexual abuse), all presented in a way that is age-appropriate and easily understood.

Designed for youngsters aged four to eight, this highly-interactive and fun program not only brings about awareness among children and others who attend, but it teaches perhaps the most important message of all: protection of one’s self and prevention of sexual abuse. Children learn what to do if they experience "bad" or "mixed-up touch." The presenter never names body parts but refers to "body parts they cover up with their bathing suits."

Via the school or organization, parents receive a letter from FSGC in advance of the Happy Bear presentation, allowing parents to call FSGC and ask questions or discuss concerns they may have. Parents always have the option of not having their child attend. Finally, parents are highly encouraged to attend so they can better understand Happy Bear’s important message and talk openly and honestly with their child.
