National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month takes place during the month of October and aims to raise awareness about bullying and cyberbullying prevention. In support of this, the City of Raleigh is asking people of all ages to take a pledge to end bullying and cyberbullying in our community and beyond.
The City offers a wide variety of youth programs designed to empower future leaders, foster creativity, and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. Through such programs, Raleigh teens can meet new friends and make a valuable difference in their community.
To raise awareness and encourage participation in programs that support teens and promote bullying prevention, the City has launched a campaign that will run throughout the month of October. The campaign features an online image gallery with quotes from past and present program participants, as well as videos that will be published on the City’s social media platforms.
Take the pledge to prevent bullying!
