|Day 1 Campaign||Tips & Facts||Tyler Clementi Foundation||2016|
The Day 1 Campaign is a program, based in research, which is designed to prevent bullying before it begins. The Day 1 pledge is designed to provide clear expectations for behavior in regards to harassment and bullying on first day of school, work, sports, or any community organization. This creates a safer environment for all individuals and supports turning "bystanders" in to "upstanders" who are an important part of curbing bullying among peers. This is a program intended to support existing anti-bullying efforts and not as a complete replacement of the work already being done. With the usage of Day 1, the incidences and severity of bullying should decline.

|Will U Stand||Tips & Facts||Heather Gere||2014|
We wanted to share STAND with stopbullying.gov in hopes that it could be shared broadly with US educators and at the upcoming Bullying Prevention Summit in August. The Will U Stand movement was started by Charleigh Gere, a Vermont teen who wanted to encourage her peers to take a stand with one another to stop bullying. She worked with her aunt, a songwriter, to compose STAND, the Anti-Bullying anthem. The song encourages youth to be the one voice, unafraid, to help victims of bullying. To get others excited about making a difference, Charleigh invited the world to participate in a crowd-sourced music video for the anthem. Clips began pouring in from all over the US and as far fledged as Australia, Ireland, Canada and the UK. The heartfelt mashup offers a positive solution to bullying. It shows victims of bullying that they are not alone and that people care. A direct link to STAND http://www.willUstand.com/standtheanthem.php STAND is the first crowd sourced music video created specifically with a purpose to help end bullying. In addition to the anthem (which is free for anyone to use and share), educators can download free bullying prevention posters and signage from the Will You Stand website. You can learn more about the project at and http://www.willustand.com/about.php

|IDEAs Against Violence||Tips & Facts||Nate Eskey||2014|
All across the country, 50 million kids go to school every day, arriving on yellow busses, by car, or walking from home. For 90,000 of these children each year, their day doesn’t end on the bus, in the car with their parents, or walking home with their friends but, instead, in a trip to the emergency room due to violence suffered in school. In an era where children spend increasingly long hours at schools, the need for solutions to the problem of violence in school environments has never been greater. With the proper education, action, and community empowerment on the subjects of school safety, violence prevention, and holistic response to acts of violence, a future can be created where parents are confident that their children will be safe every day at school and teachers will feel secure in the workplace. To transition from our current state of society to that future, IDEAs Against Violence delivers educational programming and develops safety procedures for school communities. Since school districts have too many competing budget factors as is and providing safety for schools is a moral imperative, all IDEAs Against Violence services and programs are absolutely free.
