The WE WILL Generation is the generation of students that believes:

  • bullying is never an acceptable behavior
  • everyone deserves to be safe
  • we all have a responsibility to look out for each other

The WE WILL Generation is about providing education to students with ideas on how to take action and be a part of creating safe and supportive schools. The resources of the program are designed to be used in schools to encourage conversation and engagement around creating a culture that is together against bullying—and united for kindness, inclusion and acceptance.

Why is student engagement important?

  • Today’s students, like no other generation before them, have the opportunity to address bullying and change the culture within their schools, communities, and online.
  • This generation knows that bullying is an issue for their peers; they want to help, and research shows that their actions will make a positive impact.
  • To be successful students need a school-based structure, supported with resources that provide practical strategies, solid information, and action steps.
  • Students often have an intrinsic understanding of their social environments and can exercise more “social leverage” with peers than adults.
  • Students who feel ownership of their communities, and realize that they can make a difference, can be powerful influencers.
  • In an interactive, conversational model, all involved –especially with students who are engaged- learn powerful lessons about bullying and what they can do to prevent it.

This generation is ready to take action, students are important leaders and can be catalyst for changing the culture of bullying that has happened to so many for too long. The WE WILL Generation says, ”This is our issue and we will be the solution.“ What they need now is education, support, and inspiration – and a creative, practical program to make it happen!
