BullyingCanada Knows That Our Youths Are Worth Fighting For
BullyingCanada is only national anti-bullying charity solely dedicated to creating a brighter future for bullied youth. What began as a youth-created website to bring together bullied kids and provide information on bullying and how to stop it is now a full 24/7 support service. On any day of the year, at any time, youth, parents, coaches and teachers contact us by phone, texting, online chat and email for help on how to make their bullying stop. Our Support Team has more than 350 highly-trained volunteers.
Our unique difference: BullyingCanada stands by those who reach out for help until we can bring an end to their bullying. For each incidence of bullying brought to our attention, we speak with bullied youth and their parents; bullies and their parents; teachers, coaches, guidance counselors and principals; school boards; local police if a child’s life is threatened; and local social services to get youth the counselling they need to heal. This process often takes between two weeks to more than a year.
We also offer school presentations about bullying and scholarships to students active in anti-bullying efforts. On our website are book reviews about bullying, and we publish stories and poems of bullying survivors.
BullyingCanada was launched December 17th, 2006 by 17-year-old Rob Benn-Frenette, O.N.B. and 14-year-old Katie Thompson (Neu) when the website they created went live. Both Rob and Katie were victims of extreme bullying during elementary and high school years. They sought help but could not find a charity or social service to intervene and stop them from being relentlessly tormented. So they created BullyingCanada to help kids in pain – like them.
BullyingCanada has been featured in newspapers, magazines, radio, and television across Canada and the world in multiple languages – such as Readers Digest, Today’s Parent and many more. Rob and Katie have both been publicly recognized many times for their tireless efforts.
Building the resources they needed as children, our founders have grown BullyingCanada into a national treasure.
