October is Bully prevention awareness month
This month, the world comes together to raise awareness for bullying prevention and to reflect on where we have been, where we are now, and where we hope to be in the years to come. This year’s Bullying Prevention Awareness Month marks the 10th anniversary of its initiation by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center. Since 2006, the event has grown to an entire month of education and awareness activities, and is being recognized by schools and communities throughout the world.
This month serves as a reminder that bullying prevention must be addressed, and one way to accomplish this is through educating ourselves, our communities and the youth in our lives. So, as a Partner in Bullying Prevention, we ask that you take the time this month to become more aware of the serious consequences of bullying and to learn more about what you can do prevent bullying. These efforts are highly important for parents and teachers, but also for youth themselves. This month is about our individual and collective voice, which is why our blogs will feature “Youth Voice” -- personal stories that will be featured throughout the month from groups that are likely to experience bullying.
i will be starting with my personal bully experience, on the 14/10/2016, kindly drop your bully experience in firstname.lastname@example.org, please spread the news, to create more enlightenment and awareness.
