Our bullying elimination programs are effective in schools, community youth organizations, workplaces, and senior citizens living communities.

Below is an excerpt from a recent letter from a parent of a student in a Berks County School:
Our son was emotionally, physically, and mentally shutting down and unable to express how bad things really were. …. he was able to open up that there were fistfights, nudity exposure, items being thrown at the teacher, desks being flipped, and one kid according to our son had been suspended 11 times at Thanksgiving break. 11 times! That’s once a week since the beginning of the school year. Our son’s grades were starting to slip from his inability to hear the teacher over the disruptive behavior and ability to mentally focus on learning in such an environment. His loss of sleep, his loss of appetite, and his loss of mental, physical, and emotional strength, his eyes and skin color were sunken and pale, was leaving him incapable of even functioning.
