About Be Strong
Be Strong is a nonprofit organization designed to Save Lives + End Bullying among students in America. Bullying has become a pervasive and unwelcome reality among our youth today, and not just in our children’s schools but in the online world as well.
Empowering youth to be the change they want to see in our world through hope and resiliency training. Not all aggressive behavior is qualified as bullying, our step one is to create awareness for students, parents/guardians, teachers and administrators to identify what bullying actually is providing a safe place for students to reveal the challenges that they are facing. Providing them with support and resources when social injustice issues occur. To that end, we are meeting them where they are by developing and implementing a number of tools that form the Be Strong Digital Bridge, a set of digital tools that connects people of all ages with one-touch resources such as a suicide lifeline, text line, and trusted friends alert, a Smartphone App, an information portal, increased access to social resources as well as a growing team of Be Strong Student Leaders prepared to spread the message of help, support and understanding to young people in need.
Depression, anxiety, and many other psychological challenges, can result from bullying, and exposure to violence can lead to a wide array of negative behaviors and outcomes, including alcohol and drug use, self-harm and suicide, arrests and gun violence. We therefore support training teachers, administrators, guidance counselors, and qualified community volunteers to help recognize signs that a student might need special attention.
Through heightened awareness, community advocacy and youth empowerment, Be Strong strives to shine a light on social environment safety and acceptance, enhance knowledge about the resources available and aggregate professional service providers. Join the Be Strong Movement.
