Bullying Prevention

Committee for Children is dedicated to fostering the safety and well-being of children, and bullying prevention is a key aspect of our mission. Research shows that feeling unsafe at school affects a student’s ability to learn, focus, and take academic risks. With safety and student success on the line, we’ve been consistent and unwavering in our work to prevent bullying. Our Second Step Bullying Prevention Unit is taught in conjunction with the Second Step Program in classrooms across the country.

The Second Step Bullying Prevention Unit

Prevention is key when it comes to deterring bullying in schools. With the research-based Second Step Bullying Prevention Unit, Kindergarten–Grade 5 students learn to recognize, report, and refuse bullying. Training for school staff brings the program full circle by helping adults address bullying effectively.
