Summit Conflict Resolution & Trainings decided to create this initiative because of the need that we saw in the schools, community and the Eldercare population. To have an effective anti-bullying program that is up-to-date with the latest issues and incidents of bullying is essential in taking on the expanded reach of bullying in today’s society. Most previous programs have become ineffective at making a real difference when it comes to bullying. As we see in the news, bullying has escalated to the point of not being able to escape it’s reach. This includes mob and cyber bullying and the public is becoming more desensitized to its effects on their victims. Since it is so much easier to say hurtful things with a keyboard, the reality of what is being said, is not immediately recognized by the bully. What once was a school yard interaction is now witnessed by thousands if not more because of social media.
Education is the key. From Pre-school to Eldercare communities, bullying can become a life-long issue. Without intervention, bullying can escalate to a dangerous place. We need to teach our children at an early age that this is unacceptable. And also help the school systems to deal with these issues in a positive manner when they arise. Empowering the victim and re-directing the bully is the best approach. With help, both victim and bully can re-write their future.
Our goal is to create an initiative in Kentucky that will help raise the funding needed to bring these new programs to our schools, communities and Eldercare population free of charge. We need to put a stop to bullying now because every day that we don’t do something to change, we increase the potential of more damaged lives.
