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.

I Care Because

As someone who has been bullied for years in school, I feel that no one deserves to be bullied. However, bullying is already a tradition in my current high school- Grade 11 tends to bully the new underclassmen via extracurricular activities, in which they claimed this bullying method as the preparation for uni life, while actually it makes the grade 10 feel pressured. Me and my friends has started an anti-bullying campaign anonymously and we're now ready to spread the message schoolwide.

As a person with a disability, I have been bullied and have other kids with developmental disabilities being bullied. It has made me scared how typically developing kids and adults take advantage and make life miserable for us, trying to fit in.

Ryan, 14, California

I've been bullied and have friends who get bullied. I stick up for anyone getting bully, even if I don't really like them that much. Bullying is just wrong on all levels. No one deserves to be so scared and hurt. Bullies almost never know how much the bullied person hurts from their mean words, social exclusion, gossiping, cyberbulling, or their physical bullying. No one, and I mean absolutely no one, deserves to be bullied. No matter how much you dislike them. Bullies need to realize we are real people, just like them, and we have feelings that DO get HURT by their bullying.

i want to help others like me.I want them to know that they are not alone.
right know i am studying to be a social worker which i know can help make a change about bullying.
i hope there is also an agency which is open for bully victims ,which they can develop themselves through the help of persons  that was also like them.I was dreaming to help people like me by building an agency in each schools that can care and protect each bully victim from the ridicule of others.
