The Harlem Globetrotters are known for their teamwork on the basketball court, but during their visit to Harvest Ridge Elementary, they shared a positive message about teaming up to prevent bullying. On Nov. 30, 2018, Globetrotter Briana “Hoops” Green talked with students during a school assembly about bullying prevention.

The “Team Up at School” program focuses on ways to help kids find solutions to bullying through the acronym "TEAM," which stands for Talk, Empathize, Ask and Mobilize. During the assembly, Green asked four students to talk about each letter and what each represents. The Globetrotter’s message is that being part of a team is how kids can offer support to one another to help stop bullying. "If they see something that isn't OK, take action and tell a teacher or an adult figure,” Green said. “Kids need to look out for each other and never be a bystander.”

After going through the four letters, she taught students some of the team's signature ball handling skills with the trademark Globetrotter humor - for a well-balanced program that informed and entertained.
