Because every child deserves a school that is bully-free!


Making Schools Bully-Free First

Coaching, Professional Development & Consulting

Ten percent of students who drop out of school drop out because of bullying, and millions of students skip school every day because of bullying. If schools don't address the problem of bullying first, we will never achieve the academic goals we have set as a nation, and our children's lives will be forever impacted. This doesn't have to be the way it is. We can change these  statistics. Let's do the work together to make sure all schools are bully-free first.
