In 2019, ICB developed the Be Kind - Be a PAL program for Grades 4 - 6 at the request of the Morongo School District. 45 Oasis students and 15 adults were trained as facilitators to conduct the workshop for other students at their school. The workshops continue in October 2021 after being halted due to the COVID lock down.

ICB conducted the Find Your Voice - Take a Stand workshop using Zoom as students were quarantined at home. ICB provided workshop materials that students picked up at school, and 65 students and 10 staff participated from their homes. Using an delivery format, ICB teen and adult facilitators from Colorado and California were able to assist in workshop implementation.

Intercultural Community Builders received a grant from the Kristi Visocky Memorial Fund to finance the Take A Stand Anti-Bullying Workshop for middle school students. ICB partnered with the Thompson School District E.A.R.S.S. program to conduct a 2-day workshop for 15 students from each of the five Thompson Middle Schools. Brandon Harrington from the Harrington Arts Alliance in Loveland joined the ICB facilitators, E.A.R.S.S. staff Raquel Macias, Matthew Hughes and Susan DeHerrera to work with the 75 middle school students.
