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... People that bully are either jealous or have personal or family problems going on. I don't like it when I see people getting bullied at all! If you see someone getting bullied make sure you stand up, talk to the person that's being bullied and make sure they are okay if you have to give them pep talks like if they fell that they are useless.

  • I care because bullying takes lives and makes people (including me) doubt that they matter at all.

  • I stand up against bullying because I lost a good friend that got bullied. I don't bully others because it can cause their life to end.

  • No one has the right or the room to speak about others in a negative light. None of us choose the life we live, we were dealt the cards and we just have to play with what we have. Negative words can create such a hazardous mental habitat and do not add any good to the world. Spread kindness even when you don't feel good yourself. Go out of your way to make someone else happy. Smiles are contagious, happiness is too.

  • Kids harm themselves because of Bullying, they feel worthless because of what their classmates say about them, they are being verbally abused, and sometimes physically, which is very messed up because no kids should go through any type of abuse. Either mentally or physically . I care because It's not okay and it needs to stop.

  • I feel like people in general want to be treated a way they'll feel loved. Cared about, more . So, bullying is never the case. If you see something, you should always say something. You should always remember, YOU CAN. YOU WILL. END OF STORY.
