Thanks to your support at past bully prevention walks, we have achieved tremendous gains in our efforts to prevent bullying!
Over the past year our new bully training curriculum, “Bullying: Walking Through What You Can Do” has been designed, developed, reviewed, tested, and presented to various groups across the state, and to date, we’ve trained 103 parents, 545 students, and nearly 200 educators and other professionals on bully prevention. 3,165 bully prevention resources have been distributed through the various training workshops, and according to participant surveys, 99% of training participants indicated the training curriculum had “greatly increased their knowledge of the types of bullying and bully prevention.” Even more exciting is the fact that we’ve trained eight volunteer trainers from all over Iowa to present our bully curriculum!
