The event will be from noon to 1:30 p.m. Saturday the Island Recreation Center at 20 Wilborn Road on Hilton Head Island. The cost is $20 per child and free for parents.
The program is sponsored by McElroy's Martial Arts Academy, the Island Recreation Center and the Beaufort County Sheriff's Department.
During the event, each group will give a presentation discussing a different aspect of bullying to make sure students, parents, schools and law enforcement are "on the same page" as to how to address bullying.
