Our Why

  • School-based bullying prevention programs decrease bullying by up to 25%. (McCallion & Feder, 2013)
  • One out of every five (20.2%) students report being bullied. (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2019 )
  • Students who experience bullying are at increased risk for depression, anxiety, sleep difficulties, lower academic achievement, and dropping out of school. (Centers for Disease Control, 2019)
  • Among students ages 12 – 18 who reported being bullied at school, 15% were bullied online or by text (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2019)
  • According to StopBullying.gov solutions to bullying are not simple. Bullying prevention approaches that show the most promise confront the problem from many angles. They involve the entire school community—students, families, administrators, teachers, and staff such as bus drivers, nurses, cafeteria, and front office staff—in creating a culture of respect.
