Bullying Prevention

Providing resources to help every young person feel safe in their community, online and in their school.

Bullying is preventable! Bullying is a form of youth violence and an adverse childhood experience (ACE). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines bullying as any unwanted aggressive behavior(s) by another youth or group of youths, who are not siblings or current dating partners, that involves an observed or perceived power imbalance, and is repeated multiple times or is highly likely to be repeated. Bullying may inflict harm or distress on the targeted youth including physical, psychological, social, or educational harm. We also support and encourage communities to collaborate across disciplines to prevent bullying.
