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

Bullying is something really bad, and its really sad that its actually spreading in this world. bullying can cause some really bad issues, like eating disorders, self harm, bullemia and many other stuff, bullying should be stopped. if you're reading this and you have EVER been bullied, i just want  you to know, that you're beautiful and you're worthy of life. and whatever those bullies told you, i just want you to know that its not true, and that i love every single person who's reading this, stay strong.

When I am bullied, it is generally by the popular kids. I used to think they were all nice, how else did they get popular?? But they are actually quite mean, most of them. It makes me sad to see that parents teach their kids to be this way. I sincerely have concern for you all from the bottom of my heart. In fact, I have a YouTube channel with some motivational videos and some funny ones too. Its called "freshstrawberryscone" and I would love if you checked it out! I am about to make my next video on bullying so it would be great if you looked at it :) Thank you all and I hope that video will solve your bullying problems :D I worked hard on it and I hope it helps <3

I want my daughter to NEVER experience bullying.  I hope I can help her to be strong, confident and compassionate to everyone especially the ones who need someone to be strong for them.  It is wonderful to be different; have a variety of friends with different interests.  I sometimes think how boring it would be to hang out with a bunch of "me's"! :) I know it seems great to be "popular" but it is more important to be a leader - make the popular ones follow u!!

I'd like to pretend there is always be someone somewhere willing to help me back up, and that until then we'll have to learn for ourselves. Bullying is now a part of our society, and we'll have to deal with it as best we can. I fool myself into thinking I'm fine, I'll live, and to go on pretending social justice, and equity exists.
