Student Action Plan Against Bullying

Ready to take action to address bullying? Maybe not sure how to start? As a student, bullying is something that impacts you, your peers, and your school – whether you’re the target of bullying, a witness, or the person who bullies. Bullying can end, but that won’t happen unless students, parents, and educators work together and take action.

Tell Us Why You Care

  • I Care because there might be a kid that don't want to say what is happening and there could be someone they trust to tell



    Maria — 11
  • I care because hurting others is bad.



    Aaron —
  • I care because I once was a victim. No specified reason, I was just bullied for fun I suppose. In this same way I was a victim of both, whether they realize it or not.



    Charlie — 11
  • I care because you never know what has happened to someone or why they are the way they are



    austin — 15
  • It's not cool and it's not nice to do.



    Joshua — 13
  • I care because no one deserves to be treated in such a terrible way. Stop bullying today to make the world a better place.



    Katherine — 15

So I was in 4th grade and there was these 2 girls and they were best friends. And I guess i was their ” friend ” too. They would urge and put me in the middle of it, then one of them would call me names and hurt my feelings. But even now that I’m in 6th grade they still do the same old stuff. And it’s like all they do is manipulate and goof around.
