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.

Prevent bullying, promote kindness

I Care Because

my little brother gets bullied all the time and this is his first year in high school. I am very worried that he could get hurt and so I talk to him a lot about being safe in school. It is sad that a child has to be afraid to go to school. I absolutely have no respect for people who bully but they need to be understood so they can be stopped. I caught two boys in lunch picking on my brother and I confronted them. They did not have much to say. I care because I love children and they shouldnt have to feel fear and teachers should stop looking the other way.

in 5th grade i got held back because my grades weren't good enough, so when i got into 6th grade, all of my old friends were calling me 'failure' because they thought i failed. i decided to talk to one of them because she was the only one that understood that i didn't fail. she and i convinced the other kids  that i didn't fail, my grades just weren't good enough. so every day, i always thank her for helping me

I feel alone alot of the time because i havnt got as much friends as when i did was in my other school and i think its because my friends have got new friends now. there are these kids at school that stick things on my back and i am teased because i am quite shy. they embarress me and i go red, when i go red they tease me about that too. im not hurt physically but i am hurt emoticonily, i dont want to go to school either really now because i am scared something else will make me feel worse.

I care because i care. No one should ever have to go through with bullying. NO ONE. Just because they are different or stand out from the crowd doesn't make bullying right. Stand up for the ones who don't fit in. Stand up for the ones that don't feel loved. Stand up for the ones who don't think life is worth it. No one should ever feel that way. Bullying NEEDS to stop. Everyone deserves a true friend. Be that friend.

i know what it feels like to be bullied. some of the people just get use to it, they come pre-pared for it until some people speak up.
