BullyBust: Promoting a Community of Upstanders is nationwide bully prevention awareness effort launched by NSCC in 2009. BullyBust is designed to help students and adults become “upstanders”—people who stand up to bullying and become part of the solution to end harmful harassment, teasing, and violence in our nation's schools. BullyBust promotes valuable free supports to help schools-in-need put an end to bullying with targeted school-wide and classroom-based efforts. This site includes research-based resources for students, parents, and educators for addressing bullying incidences effectively and creating a culture of upstanders inside and out of school.
BullyBust: Promoting a Community of Upstanders is one essential component of a comprehensive and effective bully prevention effort. NSCC’s bully prevention/pro-Upstander efforts are aligned with the U.S Department of Education’s guidelines for effective bully prevention practices.
