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 a HUGE issue at my school. Its everywere, and it bothers me alot. I speak up for a lot of kids, but it doesnt help. I want to do a speech or write an online article on our school website on the effects and causes of bullying and why it hurts. Cyber, verbal and physical. Its all wrong, ! 

Tiffany , 14, Indiana

I have a beautiful young daughter that has been put through hell and back because of being bullied at school. We need to all work together in our schools and stop bullying. It is extremely damaging and it can last a life time.  My daughter is a straight A student, extremely caring of others, beautiful and most people enjoy being around her.  Unfortunatley it only takes a couple bullies that can turn one's life upside down.  So please listen to your children and watch for signs because it could very well happen to your child.  It happened to mine and is still because I can't find any help.  Please let's put a stop to this before it takes any more young lives.

Julie, 43, Oklahoma

I have been a victim of bullying and I've been a bystander.  And i don't want to see others go through what i did. It changed my life in horrible ways until i was able to get over everything. And getting over it took time.

, 17, Pennsylvania

I don't understand. How can people do horrible things to those around themselves. I am going on my 3rd year of being bullied and each year i stand up for myself by telling my schools principals only to get in trouble and be punished. I believe that the "no bullying policy" is a bunch of crap because in my opinion it protects the person who is bullying. It is wrong and life should not be like this.

Alexandra, 16, Iowa

In my school I have been bullied and it does not feel good. It makes you feel bad about yourself .It just makes you ask what is wrong with me why don't they like me

Jamiah, 10, Brooklyn,NewYork

I care because I have been bullied in elementary school. I have felt the pain of the mean words and actions of my peers. Each day I had to face them, each day was a nightmare at school. But I do believe for every insult I had endured, it only made me stronger. I concentrated on my school work and followed my dreams of one day becoming a teacher. A teacher that could make a difference in her own students lives. A teacher that made sure that bullying in her classroom is stomped out.
