About Be Strong

Be Strong is a non-profit empowering youth to prevent bullying, isolation and suicide by igniting change in peer behavior through a comprehensive student – led approach to: encourage ALL students to reveal challenges they are facing, train and equip students to become more resilient, arm them with the Be Strong App to access real time and local resources that can help, and unite them to change their families, schools, communities, states, and country.

Our Story

In the fall of 2014, Be Strong was founded by the Moore family, who was directly affected by the issue of bullying. The family searched for meaningful solutions for their child but found none. In frustration, they enrolled their child in a treatment facility where life-saving resiliency skills were taught. Roy Moore, Founder of Be Strong, enlisted a group of local leaders to volunteer and tackle this top five safety, health and social issue. They committed to reaching all students with these life-saving skills.

WHY DO WE NEED

BE STRONG?

Bullying Prevention & anti-bullying efforts over the past decade have historically been instructed from a top-down approach and it’s not working.

Our communities deserve better.

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.
