Bullying Prevention Training
Spirit of Youth developed this training presentation with Anchorage Youth Vote for Empowering Youth Voice to End Bullying grantees. Learn to define and identify bullying, get tips to intervene when you see bullying occur, and discuss practical ways you can create safe and inclusive environments free from bullying behavior.
According to data collected from training participants:
97% of participants were very satisfied with the training and found the training was effective, impactful, and satisfying for participants.
Participants were more likely to take action against bullying after the training than before. 96.2% reported that they would be likely to take action after training, compared to only 59% before the training.
Participants’ attitudes, behaviors, beliefs and knowledge surrounding the nature and long-term impacts of bullying were strongly impacted by the training.
Talk of Alaska, Alaska's only statewide call-in forum for discussing the issues impacting life on the Last Frontier, dedicated this show to bullying prevention.
Line One features local physicians and national subject experts from the fields of child care, mental health, nutrition, pharmacology, surgery and more. In this episode, hosts and guests discuss bullying and its consequences.
For Youth by Youth Webinar
In a partnership between Facebook and IBPA, youth from Alaska and Tennessee share what challenges they’re facing during the pandemic, how they are coping, and what they need from other youth and adults in their communities to feel connected, engaged, and empowered to move forward.
In this podcast series, Story Works Alaska and Alaska Teen Media Institute producers discuss bullying, why it happens, how it happens and what can be done to stop it. Each podcast features stories from a different perspective of bullying and its effects, both physical and psychological. Each story is true and told by an Alaska high school student at one of the many shows put on by Story Works Alaska.
