Highlights

October is National Bullying Prevention Month - 1 out of 5 students is bullied. 5 out of 5 can help prevent that.

Get involved in this month long campaign uniting a nation to take action at the local level to prevent bullying -and promote kindness, acceptance and inclusion- in schools, communities and online.


Bullying Prevention 101

We have teamed up with Planet Fitness’ Judgement Free Generation® initiative to develop “Bullying Prevention 101,” a free educational resource designed to equip teachers, counselors and other educators with tools to empower students to prevent bullying and stand up for kindness. This comprehensive online module provides resources and engaging activities designed to help students develop the skills to advocate for their peers, whether you are just beginning the bullying prevention conversation in your school or taking further steps to spread kindness. The material is available for elementary, middle, and high school students.

Prevent bullying, promote kindness

I Care Because

I have been bullied since I was in 2nd grade. Once I was pushed into the middle of the street.. I was always bullied because I was fat and ugly. I want all of you to know that you don't have to look like everybody else to be beautiful, love yourself and believe in yourself. Don't let haters hurt you, let them motivate you! It may be hard but you just have to stay strong.

As a child I was bullied pretty harshly in Elementary school.  As I approached High School I became the bully.  It was a terrible cycle that played out.  Now I am older and as I look back I see that cycle.  I cannot help or change what I experienced or did in the past.  I cannot heal the hurt I have caused.  This I understand.

Bullying hurts, in school I would get bullied and no one would do any thing! Now when I see my friends getting bullied or even some one I dont know I'll do what think is right and I'll stick up for them even is it means I'll get bullied to. Because I've been in the position and I know how it feels when one one is there!!!!!!!!!!!

I dont know where to share about bullying so i come here.
When i was kindergarden,i always get bullied.I was group with  6 peoples.In the group,there was the 2 bullies.I try to be friend with them like i drew something for them but they tear it but i try to think positive.
I keep this matter silent to myself.The point is i try to be brave every step of the way.Every step of your life surely there problem like bullying or whatever.If i have a problem i will always think that every step of my life,there's surely a problem and there's alway a way out.

Diyanah, 13, SG

I have seen many people be bullied, I have never been bullied, but I try to stand up for the kids who have. Ive fought kids just to get them to stop bullying other kids. I feel bad for the kids that get bullied. i guess im kinda in a group of friends, but i still ahng out and be friends with everybody. If run in to me youll probably see me in a kinda country/rebel crowd, but im friends with any one who would be friends with me.
