Premiering at PACER’s Annual Benefit on May 11, 2019, this video features Paula Goldberg, PACER’s Executive Director, sharing the behind-the-scenes story which set in motion the 2006 creation of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.


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.

My freind Maddy and I were bullied. Maddy was bullied because she went somewhere for extra help and a girl though that she was so dumb that she had to have someone help her work. I was bullied because I wasn't popular. I would want to play a game and they would say that I wasn't popular enough to play. Then the girl that told me I couldn't play would call me names like "Idiot" "dumb head" and she would pick on me. Later the following year she left but her friend were still being mean and bullying me. Last year I started to get better for me but my friends all tranfered schools and I haven't seen any since 5 grade promotion.

Bullying doesn't go away. Even if the bully stops, the words or comments or bruises will never heal. They leave scars that no amount of scar cream will erase. It's not a passing phase or right of passage. Nobody should ever go to school and feel like they're not loved and appreciated. The hardest part for me to comprehend is that bullying IS entirely preventable. So think before you and your friends leave that mean comment, or send that anonymous text, or tell that boy in the hallway he's worthless, or shoving the girl who's dating your best friend's crush into the locker. Just think about what you're about to do to that person and the scars you'll be leaving behind. Just THINK.

Bullying isn't a aprt of growing up, I hate when people say that because i's not true, I know it may seem like it's the end of the world but it's not! I'm here telling you all that it isnt. I'm living proof telling you that it gets better just stay strong.
