Bullying has reached an epidemic proportion in our schools, and it is vitally important that students learn to address it and see that they are not alone in their experience. Since 2003, the Golden Rule Project has instituted a number of programs that share the common principle of the Golden Rule. To introduce the Golden Rule as a theme for educators, with support from the Utah Division of Arts and Museums and the Utah Board of Education, the Golden Rule Project produces materials for schools such as broadsides, billboards, posters, coloring cards and bookmarks.

In 2013, the GRP commissioned professional magician, Steffan Soule, to create a performance that explains and conveys the Golden Rule to teenagers, the toughest audience in the world. From the first presentation, Soule’s show was a hit. Now, after more than 30 performances in Utah, “Attention, Magic and the Golden Rule” not only engages a theater full of teens, but it’s been refined to work for younger audiences as well as adults. Using magical effects that serve as allegories for ways to understand the sources of bullying, Soule offers strategies for mitigating it and for building a community of support to make this damaging behavior disappear.

Today, with the help of the Arts in Education Program at the Utah Arts Council, R. Harold Burton Foundation, George Eccles Foundation and many individuals, the Golden Rule Project provides this special presentation and other materials at no charge to schools and community groups.

The program will again benefit thousands of students in May, as “Attention, Magic and the Golden Rule” will be performing for 2 weeks in Salt Lake, Wasatch and Weber counties. This time, the DARE program will be welcoming the presentation because it fits in with the DARE mission, to teach students how to make choices and decisions that will lead them to live safe and healthy lives.

To connect with the school assembly coordinators within the school system, The Golden Rule Project will attend the PTA conference at BYU on May 15th and 16th so that schools in more counties throughout Utah can have Steffan Soule’s presentation and find ways of implementing the Golden Rule to reduce bullying.
