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

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.

I Care Because

there was a forward going around the school about me. one of my frinds was the one who made it up,too. look...im sick of it. kids are killing themselves, they are getting tortured, and no one is doing anything about it! ive actually thought about and tried to commit suicide. im sorry-but people dont need to do this to each other, i wish they wouldnt---and hopefully  it stops. soon. :'(

I know what it feels like to be bullied. It pretty much took over my life and I hate it. I don't want anyone else to feel this way.

I have been bullied for seven years and it still goes on,I always hear names when I walk down the  hallways...I actually got shoved into a locker with my stuff flying all over the hallways,I get picked on for how I dress,How pale I am,And even because in few of my classes I answer a lot of the questions in class.I hate being bullied and I wish it would stop.I just got called a cliche and a teenybopper today,and Its people like that who leave scars,I wish I could end all this tormenting...

This is the response to a "hey" I sent to someone on chat...."U stupid little girl leave me alone no one likes u so get a life and ya I get that u like me and all but tbh u r annoying ugly and fat so ya"  This happens all the time at school. People are just mean and it makes me sad that I can't have to any friends. it is so bad I want to change schools. I really wish the teachers would open there eyes.

I want to stop bullying because I got bullied before

Anonymous, 10, Rockwall TX

I care because during my first 6 years of Elementary, I was bullied. During my last year it was behind my back. I couldn't trust a lot of my friends, but I knew those I could trust, and I talked to them about it. They were a great help in comforting me and helping me stand tall and be proud of who I am. I watched a movie, and a girl like me grew up to have the highest possible security clearance!! I play violin and know that if I just stand tall and practice, I'll get better and make it big one day.
