Care. Connect. Champion. A Middle School Bullying Prevention Toolkit
This new online resource was developed especially to help youth ages 11 through 14 share their voice and engage in bullying prevention. It provides easy-to-follow steps for activity planning, templates, videos, tips for building support within their school, contest ideas and more for student-led campaigns. A special section for advisors helps adults support these school and afterschool groups and provides school climate assessment tools, best practices and resource on bullying prevention and interventions.
Adults at home, at school and in the community have important roles to play in bullying prevention and intervention. Recently updated, this toolkit provides centralized and authoritative information, tools and best practices to help families, schools and communities recognize, understand and prevent bullying. It covers topics like how to differentiate between bullying and conflict, ways to respond to cyberbullying, potential legal implications of bullying-type behaviors, and more.
