What is the problem you found?
How might we help students feel like they're being listened to and provide support and advice when bullying occurs?
Customer / Problem
Bullying is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. 20 out of 25 students that we surveyed stated that they have witnessed a person getting bullied. But how should they respond? What should they do? So many young people are bullied, and some of the bullies themselves do not understand the negative impact their actions can have on another person.
What Is Your Solution?
Our solution is a social enterprise that provides online support, videos and in school service programs that educate youth around the effects of bullying. Our programs aim to build empathy among those who bully others while providing youth with practical strategies to respond to bullying when it occurs. The 2 day in school service programs will include interactive activities and the profits of these programs will fund their continuation as well as the online support platform.
