NSV Highlight on: PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center

The PACER Center trains and informs families of children with disabilities. They see that bullying is a problem for all types of children, especially those with disabilities. So they created PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.

Now celebrating its 10th year of October’s National Bullying Prevention Month, the Bullying Prevention Center promotes events all over the country creating awareness about the problem of school bullying. They also offer general resources–facts, statistics, posters, and handouts–for schools and parents. For teachers, there are classroom resources available on their website to help engage students, K-12, to build awareness and understanding about the dangers of bullying. They have 30 videos that can be shared to promote bullying prevention, stories about kids and teens taking a stand against bullying, and resources that teach community members to create awareness about the dangers of bullying.

The Pacer Center also offers two more specific sites for teens and kids: Teens Against Bullying and Kids Against Bullying. These sites give kids and teens answers they need to keep them safe from bullies while also offering youth a platform to unite against bullying.
