U.S. ALL STAR FEDERATION FOR CHEER AND DANCE ANNOUNCES NATIONAL PARTNERSHIP WITH MONIQUE BURR FOUNDATION FOR CHILDREN
We are proud to be joining forces with the Monique Burr Foundation for Children in order to further our efforts toward providing a safe environment for All Star athletes. As part of this partnership the USASF will be providing the MBF Athlete Safety Matters®️ program and services to all Member Programs.
MBF Athlete Safety Matters®️ is a comprehensive, evidence-informed curriculum that educates and empowers youth athletes with information and strategies to prevent, recognize and respond appropriately to bullying, cyberbullying, all types of abuse and digital dangers. This program is easy to implement and fun for youth athletes. Based on teaching All Star athletes 5 safety rules, it can be used in any situation in which they do not feel safe. The program also teaches them how to identify a Safe Adult and to always seek the help of an adult if they are unsure if they are safe.
