Thank you all for playing a part in Bullying Prevention Month. It’s wonderful that our cause is recognized on such a broad scale that we are given a month long platform to raise awareness. As the leading anti-bullying, and now, anti-cyberbullying organization, we are proud to share some of our latest work with you in this month’s newsletter. More importantly, we hope that our monthly updates help sustain your anti-bullying efforts year round. Together, let’s make childhood bully-free!
Here are some highlights:
Will as new CEO
We are excited to announce our new CEO at No Bully, Mr. Will McCoy! Will is a career educator and education technology entrepreneur. He has served schools and districts at all levels for more than 20 years! We are so happy that Will has agreed to accept this senior leadership position.
Power of Zero
We are proud to announce the formation of Power of Zero -- a collaborative campaign dedicated to teaching children from the earliest ages how to be compassionate, resilient and inclusive online -- reinforcing the skills that young children will need to develop meaningful and lasting relationships throughout life. The campaign will include learning materials developed by Scholastic, the world leader in books and educational content.
Today is an excellent time to get more involved in the campaign

- Sign up for the Power of Zero learning materials that we are developing with our educational partner Scholastic - downloadable free of cost when they are released in January.
Raising awareness for National Bullying Prevention just became easier as No Bully and Sock Problems work together to well, Sock Bullying! Our “Sock Bullying” sock is available for preorder now and the more pairs we sell, the closer we get to the next tier of giving. Currently, we are set to receive 25% of proceeds as we sell anywhere between 0-10,000 socks.
We are still welcoming on new schools for the 2018-2019 school year
No Bully has a team of 20 amazing trainers that travel throughout the U.S. to help schools eradicate bullying. We are constantly adding new schools to our efforts, and would love for your local school to be one of them. In some cases, we have scholarships that cover the cost of a No Bully program at your school for No Cost! Please reach out to Hannah Apa, Education Program Assistant, for more information. [email protected] or (415) 561-7842.
Our new anti-bullying television series with Langley Productions
We are meeting with schools nationwide to select those that will be highlighted in the upcoming TV series, produced by Langley Productions. Each episode will feature a student troubled by bullying, followed by the intervention from a Solution Team, and the culture change that takes place on school campuses that implement the No Bully approach. If you are a current No Bully school, or would like to be a part of the series as a new school partner, please reach out to Will McCoy, CEO of No Bully. [email protected] or (415) 561-7842.
Please join the conversation by joining/following us on social media
