MBF Bullying Prevention Toolkit

 

Did you know?

At the Monique Burr Foundation for Children (MBF), we believe every child deserves to be safe from child victimization, including bullying. These statistics show why we need to bring attention to bullying and promote kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. Bullying is preventable, but it takes everyone’s commitment to recognize and respond to it, and it takes consistent education and intervention to prevent it.

The MBF team has developed a Bullying Prevention Month Toolkit, a curated kit of resources to help you celebrate bullying prevention month and cultivate a culture of kindness in your school.

Please feel free to share this toolkit with your teachers, colleagues, and other school staff!

 

Lesson Plans

 

 

Research shows bullying CAN be stopped, but true change requires consistent education and intervention. Below are lesson plans for educators to help create a culture of kindness and safety in your school. Educators and prevention specialists at MBF developed these bullying prevention lesson plans for use during the month of October (National Bullying Prevention Month) to help prevent and stop bullying. These lessons are easy to implement and can be delivered to students by classroom teachers.

While one lesson will not end bullying, using these lessons and the included activities as part of a broader plan to help reduce bullying is a great start.

What They're Saying...

The MBF Teen Safety Matters curriculum hosts an in-depth approach to important social and safety concerns relevant to youth. The program content is age-appropriate with engaging activities, jargon, and realistic situations to positively promote a relatable and impacting learning experience…Teen Safety Matters is an educational benefit to all parties involved – students, parents, facilitators, and schools.

I heard about the program through my son. He came home…and showed me the safety rules. I cannot thank the Foundation enough; to have other people who are also concerned about my child’s safety and the safety of other kids is wonderful. I especially like the program’s focus on the prevention side.

There’s not a child in the world who can’t benefit from this program. There are so many instances where we see children who have been damaged and hurt. Things happened to them and we think, if they’d only had this program, if they’d only had the benefit of this education, that might not have happened to them. If we can prevent that from happening to a single child, then it’s worth all the effort we have put forth.
