With bullying becoming a hot topic all over in recent years, it has become much easier to Get Your Community Involved To Stop Bullying. Not only are there great resources out there to help you know how to begin, the knowledge these days makes it easier to encourage others to get involved. Creating a local community environment that desires to protect victims of bullying and stop it from happening again is a great way to fight back.
GET YOUR COMMUNITY INVOLVED TO STOP BULLYING
Work with your local School District to have Rallies & Promotions:
Whether it is the selling of stop bullying ribbons, magnets, badges or stickers that are anti-bullying, or a school district wide carnival focused on preventing and stopping bullying, your school district is the place to begin. Some schools will be highly involved and can provide help and means to make these things happen. Other schools may provide a location, but leave all organizing and fund raising up to you.
Create a local support group for kids and teens
Do you have a local community center, boys and girls club or other non profit organization that would allow you to hold meetings? Creating a local support group for kids and teens can allow others to get involved easily. Outside organizations in the community provide a freedom that school districts often cannot.
Seek local fund raising opportunities
Many areas have chain restaurants like Chick Fil A that allow for promotion nights to raise money for good causes. A promotion to raise funds for bullying prevention and awareness is a great way to help get your community involved to stop bullying. If they don’t already know about your fight against bullying, a public campaign will bring awareness to the forefront.
Use your acquaintances, friendships and knowledge of the local community to start building a campaign against bullying. By working alongside prominent members of your community, you can build a larger reach of impact. Not only will this help get your community involved to stop bullying, but it will raise awareness to new individuals who were previously unaware of the impact bulling has on our students and children.
