(WXIA) -- A former Harlem Globetrotter will visit two Atlanta-area schools this week to teach children how to work together to prevent and stop bullying.

TyRone "Hollywood" Brown will stop by Norton Park Elementary School in Smyrna and Heritage Academy in southeast Atlanta on Tuesday, May 6. Both visits are sponsored by Gas South.

Brown is an ambassador for P.R.O. Kids Group, a non-profit organization that helps young people combat peer pressure. The group was founded by Harlem Globetrotters alumni.

Students at both schools will also receive copies of A Piece of Paper, a children's book written by Brown.

"This is such a unique opportunity for our students, and they could not be more excited to meet a Harlem Globetrotters alumnus in person," Doug Daughterty, principal of Norton Park Elementary, said in a statement.
