Programs: Almost 30% of youth in the US (over 5.7 million) are estimated to be involved in bullying as either a bully, a target of bullying or both. Every seven minutes a child is bullied in the playground -- and 85% of the time there is no intervention. Bully-victim-passive bystander behavior is the most common behavior that undermines feeling safe in schools. It is critical that schools get the support they need to move from a culture of passive bystanders to a culture of upstanders -- community members who notice bully-victim behavior and learn to 'stand up' -- directly or indirectly -- and say "no" to this toxic behavior.
BullyBust is NSCC's back-to-school bullying awareness campaign designed to help students "stand up" to bullying and become part of the soultion to end harmful verbal harassment, teasing and violence in our nation's schools. Engaging students and promoting excitement in this program is of utmost importance. Statistics show that cracking down on individual bullies is seldom effective, but a school-wide commitment to end bullying can reduce the problem by 50%. This past fall, NSCC launched a viral "Stand up to Bullying" YouTube contest within schools nationwide wherein groups of students have been able to sharetheir video messages, stories and words of support. The school prompting the best video will win a special symposium dedicated to bullying awareness.

As president of the Social-Emotional Learning Alliance for Massachusetts, I want to say how collaborative the National School Climate Center has been with our organization and commend them for their involvement in our all-volunteer group. Jonathan Cohen and his staff have repeatedly lent their name and organizational experience to our efforts as they have seen the wisdom in working collectively to advance SEL in our schools. Their work on our Steering Committee and involvement in our 4th Annual Spring SEL Conference at the State House in Boston was capped off by Jonathan Cohen coming to Boston to be one of our breakout session leaders, showing how School Climate and SEL can work together to make school a positive place to spend their day.
