Work to eliminate bullying

Posted by Peter MUIR

October in the US is  is Bullying Prevention Month—a time when students, educators, friends, and parents unite to raise awareness for bully prevention.  For ideas on ways you could create a service project aiming to increase awareness about bullying, and decrease its prevalence, check out this blog from Youth Service America and see what their youth ambassadors are doing to stand up against bullying.

Additionally, No Name-Calling Week is another initiative in the US.  It is an annual week of educational activities aimed at ending name-calling of all kinds and providing schools with the tools and inspiration to launch an on-going dialogue about ways to eliminate bullying in their communities.
