Bully-free zone

A Peacemaking Project by Kevin L.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Bullying is a serious topic that affects many. We will help people speak out to a trusted adult or friend and let others stand up for themselves and for others.

Hi Kevin,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for an Accelerator, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Best,
Adrian

Kevin, thanks for sharing. This is such an important project. Bullying can hurt its victims in powerful ways, and it's great when young people like you step up to do something about it.

I think the solutions you advocate for -- helping others speak out and stand up -- are great ideas. They require a lot of courage, which can be difficult if you're being threatened or don't feel confident in yourself.

I think a great place to start is by talking to folks in your school -- especially people who have been bullied. What would they find helpful? Here's something that can help you with that: https://www.peacefirst.org/resource/understand-1-talking-others

We're ready to help you however we can.
