Bullying Program

Bullying Program

Learn how youth can be the driving force to impact bullying and school climate through professional development, presentations or delivering a comprehensive youth program.

The Concept

Youth to Youth identifies young people as the driving force behind impacting critical teen issues like bullying and school climate. The same Y2Y model of youth-led prevention that has been successful for over thirty years in drug prevention and youth development engages young people in resisting and reducing bullying and improving school climate through education, personal growth, community change, and alternatives.

In developing the knowledge, skills, and support to become upstanders rather than bystanders to bullying, youth become a powerful force in making positive change in their schools and communities.

Youth to Youth has several bullying prevention programs and services available:

  • Professional development or training:
    Appropriate for any adults who work with youth, this training includes basic bullying education, effective prevention/early intervention strategies, and how to engage young people in new or existing efforts. This can be tailored to fit the needs of the school, community, or group and can be delivered in a condensed one hour presentation or up to a day-long training.
  • Interactive, youth-led presentation or workshop for 4th-8th grade students
    Through skits, video, games and personal stories, C.R.E.A.T.E. P.E.A.C.E. teaches students 11 simple ways to become upstanders to bullying. Presentation package includes discussion topics and copy of skits, as well as an overview on the 11 ways students can become upstanders to bullying.
