October is Bullying Prevention Month

In honor of Bullying Prevention Month, the Center for Safe Schools is hosting its annual School Safety Conference, naming the 2019 Pennsylvania Bullying Prevention Champions, rallying at the capitol and offering exciting new toolkits and resources.


Bullying Prevention Rally

October 29, 2019 | 12 - 1 p.m.
Pennsylvania State Capitol’s Main Rotunda, Harrisburg, Pa.

On October 29, join the Center for Safe Schools and bullying prevention advocates as they gather at the Pennsylvania state capitol to take a stand for the commonwealth’s 1.7 million students in recognition of Governor Wolf’s proclamation of October as Bullying Prevention Month, demonstrating that the commonwealth acknowledges the vital importance of bullying prevention efforts for each child’s learning, health and success later in life. The new Middle School Bullying Prevention Toolkit will also be launched as part of the event.

Presented by the Center for Safe Schools at Center for Schools and Communities.


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.

Launching October 29, 2019.


Pennsylvania Bullying Prevention Toolkit
