Bullying Prevention 101

We have teamed up with Planet Fitness’ Judgement Free Generation® initiative to develop “Bullying Prevention 101,” a free educational resource designed to equip teachers, counselors and other educators with tools to empower students to prevent bullying and stand up for kindness. This comprehensive online module provides resources and engaging activities designed to help students develop the skills to advocate for their peers, whether you are just beginning the bullying prevention conversation in your school or taking further steps to spread kindness. The material is available for elementary, middle, and high school students.

Prevent bullying, promote kindness

I Care Because

I was a bystander but this site inspired me. I want to thank you because of you I have helped victims of bullying

Julia, 19, Ontario

It's an issue world-wide. Most people say bullying is part of everyone's life, it happens to everyone. Well it shouldn't be the case. Bullying is wrong and unfair. It pushes people to the limit, makes them uncertain about everything. They don't deserve it. We are all equal, we all live on the same planet, breathe the same air. What makes them so different? 
Life would be nicer if people just got along. Bully is so cruel and unessicary. We can stand up against bullying if we work together. No-one can do it alone.

Amylouise, 13, Regina, Saskatchewan

I care because when you watch the news and hear that a kid killed themselves due to the affect of bullying, it sad. The bystanders claim they saw nothing. Unfortunatley i guess they dont have the guts to stand up for someone. They couldve saved a life if they spoke up. Its great that marisa, michael, hayley, demi, rj, and kylie are doing something. itsbecause of them that people try to stop bullying. R.I.P every one who was bullied to death, and god bless their families.

i was bullied for 3 years it was cyber and at school. It was terrible i am still very self concious about myself. I felt so alone because all of my friends turned on me so i was vulnerable. Demi lovato has inspired me to be a better person and to see light after the storm

daisy, 15, ca

I have been bullied since I was in pre-school.  Over the years it has gotten worse.  There are these really snotty girls at my school and they don't like me at all.  One time, I was walking behind one of them and all of the sudden she yelled, "Brake!" and stopped right in front of me.  I have my friends and family and they understand what happens, but the teachers don't want to even listen to me.  I told the school councelor what had been happening, with my friends, and nothing ever happened.  I feel something should happen, but I doubt something will.

Ciarra, 13, Colorado

i think bullying is hurtful! i does nothing but hurt someones feelings and makes a bad statment about you
