BENEFITING: National School Climate Center
Research shows that cracking down on individual bullies is seldom effective, but a school-wide commitment to end bullying can reduce the problem by 50%. Last year, The National School Climate Center (NSCC) launched BullyBust, a community-wide bully prevention awareness campaign designed to help students and adults “stand up” to bullying and become part of the solution to end harmful verbal harassment, teasing and violence in our nation's schools. BullyBust promotes valuable free supports to help schools-in-need put an end to bullying with targeted school-wide and classroom-based efforts.
Today, BullyBust reaches more than 500,000 students in more than 1,300 schools and districts nationwide, but we know there are thousands more in need of our help.
We are asking for support from you—our friends, parents and educators—to help us reach these students and ensure that we create a community of “upstanders” who support NSCC's vision that all children deserve to develop the essential social, emotional and intellectual skills to become healthy and productive citizens.
Your contribution will help make certain that BullyBust continues to grow in the year ahead, providing high-quality bully prevention supports for free to every school that needs them.
The National School Climate Center (NSCC) is an organization that helps schools integrate crucial social, emotional and civic learning with academic instruction to enhance student performance, prevent drop outs, reduce violence, and develop healthy and positively engaged adults.
