FOUNDATIONS & CHARITIES


Empower Children. Stand Up for Bullying Prevention. Change Lives!

Children’s bullying is a serious and escalating problem. Bullying undermines learning, damages hearts and brains, and increases the risks for depression and anxiety – for victims, targets, and bystanders. The social cost is huge and the longer bullying continues unchecked, the harder it is to repair.

Children must feel safe and connected in order to learn and bullying must stop for that to happen. I’ve Got Your Back: Help Children Say Hello to Friends & Goodbye to Bullies is a powerful tool to support children to create positive, respectful relationships and resilient self-esteem.

I’ve Got Your Back is uniquely designed for parents and children to read together. Short and action-focused, I’ve Got Your Back clearly identifies “Bullying Essentials” – what kids, parents, caregivers, and teachers really need to know. Engaging children’s stories about friendship, bullying, and conflict, along with practical, skill-building activities for adults and children to do together will help children become inclusive, empathic, and respectful of themselves and others.

Children will learn to protect themselves from becoming targets of bullying behavior, how to deal with bullying when it occurs, and how to stand up for one another. Adults will learn to create consistent, protective environments where bullying is caught at the earliest stages. Teachers can easily adapt all activities for classroom use.

We invite you to partner with us to get I’ve Got Your Back into the hands of as many parents, teachers, and children as possible. By educating large groups of adults and kids to implement practical social behavior strategies at the same time, we can move bullying prevention forward in a BIG way!

 

  • I’ve Got Your Back is the perfect item to pair with school supplies and resource kits. It’s a great way to build a culture of kindness and empathy. Using the same teaching resources in every elementary classroom creates consistency and progress within the school. When children bring I’ve Got Your Back home to share with parents and siblings, communication opens, children feel supported, and standardization of important messages is improved between home and school.
  • I’ve Got Your Back can be distributed on a school-by-school or district-by-district basis, locally or nationally, as a stand-alone resource or paired with existing programs providing school supplies and teacher resources to underserved schools and communities
  • I’ve Got Your Back can be incorporated into youth, after-school, and religious programs. Anywhere children come together in social groups is a great place to build the skills of collaboration and friendship.
  • Back-to-school season is a perfect opportunity to “press the reset button” to create and bolster safe, nurturing school environments. Did you know that October is National Bullying Prevention Month? I’ve Got Your Back is great support for adults and kids at any time of year.
  • I’ve Got Your Back can be customized with your foundation or charity’s name and/or a message from your President, CEO, or Executive Director. (Ask about bulk purchases & pricing.)

Working together, we can stand up for kindness in our communities!
