Back To School Special: Boo2Bullying

September 9, 2019

Twenty percent of students between the ages of 12 and 18 were bullied during the 2016-2017 school year, according to the report from the National Center for Education Statistics, the research arm of the U.S. Education Department. Among those students who faced bullying, 15 percent said they were bullied online or by text, a 3.5 percentage point jump from the 2014-2015 school year. In this episode we talk to Founder/ President of Boo2Bullying Dimitri Hakidis and Boo2Bullying Youth Ambassador Solange Signorett.

To address this epidemic, Boo2Bullying was born in 2011 as a grassroots youth empowerment program with a clear mission: to eradicate bullying, intolerance and discrimination. With programs designed for youth from 8 to 18, their multi-media approach to social-emotional awareness gives young people the tools to help foster a healthy self-image as they learn to speak their truth, accept diversity and have a positive impact on their peers.
