Created by and for teens, this website is a place for middle and high school students to find ways to address bullying, to take action, to be heard, and to own an important social cause.
Bullying was once an act limited to playgrounds or school hallways. The Internet has opened up a whole new world of socialization for young people through e-mail, Web sites, instant messaging, chat rooms, blogs and text messages. The increased use of the Internet and prevalence of computers in schools and homes has transformed bullying into a new kind of threat for children. It has given school "bullies" a new platform on which to intimidate and harass others. Cyber bullying is quickly becoming a challenging issue facing young people, parents and educators.
PACER's Kids Against Bullying is a bullying prevention website created by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center, which was founded in 2006, and actively leads social changes, so that bullying is no longer considered and accepted childhood rite of passage. PACER's Kids Against Bullying is a creative, innovative and educational website designed for elementary school students to learn about bullying prevention, engage in activities and to be inspired to take action.
