The Power to Effect Change
The Anti-Bully Crusaders Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational opportunities and support systems that enhance the future and impact the lives of our young people. Our goal is to empower those who are affected by the bully situation—to find ways to build a safer and more loving society for all. We have developed a groundbreaking program that will change the landscape of our communities. The ABC program nurtures personal development and fosters a community environment, complementing the positive programming objectives of the schools and communities that adopt it. Our program has been tried and tested. It has extraordinary possibilities and helps to solve two of the world’s most critical issues-Bullying and Violence!
The number of bullying-related suicides in America are startling. Acts of cruelty, intimidation, and violence among our young people are at an all-time high. While mitigating factors contribute to this problem, it is our mission to focus on the solutions. We can no longer sit aside and do nothing while our young people continue to lose their lives as a result of senseless acts of violence. We must take action. Something is clearly broken and needs to be fixed. But what? And how? The Antibully Crusaders Organization has the proactive solution. ABC offers schools, students, and their community an opportunity to participate in our Anti-bullying Interactive Workshops and Power Action Seminars to bring about a healthy change and routine into lives.

The Solution: “Implement ABC Workshops”
To combat this problem, ABC has developed a groundbreaking interactive experiential workshop. Designed to eradicate the enormous outbreak of bullying in America and around the world. ABC brings participants together in a 30-session workshop. Each lesson and exercise will help develop and cultivate cognitive skills in a fun entertaining way. It is designed for facilitators to interactively work with young people through mutual voluntary participation.
This experience is often life-altering and allows participants to gain information and insight, rethink what has been learned in the sessions, and put it into application. Our therapeutic self-help curriculum provides participants with the personal skills and necessary tools to develop a positive attitude towards acceptance, peace and tolerance. It not only equips the student with the necessary knowledge, it also provides parents and teachers the support needed to reinforce the lessons learned by the student. Our goal is to make every school a BULLY FREE SAFE ZONE.
