What’s the Be Strong APP?

WHY DO WE NEED
Bullying Prevention & anti-bullying efforts over the past decade have historically been instructed from a top-down approach and it’s not working.
Our youth deserve better. They deserve a comprehensive student-led approach.
Be Strong resolved to reverse these trends (statistics to the right) by equipping and empowering youth to ignite change in peer behavior. To date, Be Strong’s approach has proven to be effective.
of 9th - 12th grade students have been BULLIED on SCHOOL PROPERTY
of students FELT SAD & HOPELESS almost every day for 2 or more weeks
of students have seriously CONSIDERED SUICIDE
of students have ATTEMPTED SUICIDE one or more times in the past 12 months
School campuses are in a state of flux. A mental health crisis on campus is exposing questions of meaning, purpose, and connection, resulting in fear and violence. And the world is only getting more complex. Amid these challenges, students are also the least hopeful they’ve been in history.
This moment of flux is also a moment of opportunity. What if students took the pain they experienced from bullying, isolation and hopelessness, and used it as motivation to create inclusive environments? What if instead of being the reason they don’t go to school, become violent, harm themselves, it’s the reason they find hope and purpose?
Through heightened education, community mobilization, advocacy and youth empowerment, Be Strong strives to save and change lives by shining a light on social environment safety and acceptance, enhance knowledge about the help/resources available and aggregate professional service providers.
