BBYO Signs the NEA's Bully Free: It Starts with Me Pledge
One caring adult can keep a bullied student from dropping out of school. One caring adult may save a bullied student’s life. NEA's Bully Free: It Starts With Me campaign, is asking you to be that caring adult. Please join BBYO's staff and community of caring adults by taking this pledge.
By taking this pledge, you agree to listen to bullied students who approach you and take action to stop the bullying. In return, NEA will provide you with free resources to help you support these students.
At the beginning of the 2015 school year, Seth Goodman, then 16, was sitting around with a group of friends from the Randy Reisbord chapter of the Jewish youth group AZA. The conversation turned to the topic of Shabbat and Goodman’s reminiscences of Friday nights spent with family and with the local Chabad house at his former Fort Lauderdale home.
