Anytown at School

Building more inclusive, respectful schools

NCCJ’s Anytown at School (also called “Anytown Anytime”) is a menu of in-school programs built on the powerful and proven concepts of Anytown. These programs offer middle and high school students the knowledge and tools they need to combat stereotyping and bullying and build more compassionate, inclusive and respectful school communities. 

Anyday, a 6-hour human relations program for middle and high school students that can be delivered virtually or in-person, is the most popular of these programs. Other programs include:

  • Break the Cycle: Be the Change, an assembly-style program focused on ways teens can identify and stop bullying
  • STARR: Students Talking About Race + Racism, a 3-day non-residential program for teens to share their experiences and learn about the role Greensboro and High Point played in the civil rights movement of the 50s and 60s
  • NCCJ Youth Ambassador program, a series of ongoing meetings to mentor and train Anytown and STARR graduates throughout the rest of their time in high school
  • Youth Leadership Conference, an annual, day-long conference for up to 200 high school students, is led by NCCJ’s Youth Ambassadors
