Bullying Prevention Programs/descriptions


The ACT Parents Raising Safe Kids program is a national research-based initiative designed to educate communities and families to create safe, healthy environments that protect children and youth from violence.

Bully-Busters offers a highly engaging, practical program aimed at preventing bullying in primary schools.

Bully Prevention Challenge Course Curriculum

The Bully Prevention Challenge Course Curriculum utilizes a challenge ropes course to address bully behaviors in seventh-grade middle school classes.

Bus Buddies program

This program works by rewarding children for good behavior rather than punishing them for bad behavior. 1) 3 buddies are assigned to ride each bus. One sits in the front; one sits in the middle, and the other is charged with the back. 2) The buddies monitor the behaviors of students around them. Those who are obeying the seven student-created rules are rewarded tickets. Buddies distribute four or five tickets per ride. 3) The receiver of the ticket then turns it in for a prize. Some of the rewards include pencils, erasers, stress balls and apples. 4) The rules are: obey the bus driver; respect others; let others sit with you; keep the bus clean; keep the aisle clear of things and self; sit in your seat, and talk quietly.

CAPSLE Program

This program gives students tools for solving conflicts at school and home and teaches them better and more effective coping skills.

This program is for children to use in social and personal education where feelings and attitudes count more than knowledge and the aim is to change children's behavior. FearNot! helps in education against bullying and ORIENT is aimed at developing intercultural empathy. This software is freely available.

This program provides individual, group, family and school community level actions to address and prevent bullying in its social context. The Program assists with the design, development, implementation, dissemination and evaluation of a social skill building and comprehensive anti-bullying program.

HALT! Bullying Prevention Program

This program addresses five critical children's health issues - nutrition, physical activity, self-esteem, grieving and bullying - through education, communications, volunteerism, grants and programming.

In KiVa, there is a strong emphasis on influencing the onlookers, who are neither bullies nor victims, to make them show that they are against bullying and to make them support the victim, rather than encourage the bully.

Lunch Buddy program

This program is a school-based lunchtime mentoring program where bullied children are paired with college student mentors who visited twice each week.

Implemented at the school, classroom, and individual levels, this program is designed to reduce bullying, prevent future bullying, and improve relationships at every level.

This is a school based physical activity program with the goals and research support that has shown an increase children's physical activity level, decrease in bullying and decrease in playground injuries.

Peaceful Schools programs, products and services are developed to promote a school community that engages students and staff in positive productive conflict resolution.

The RWsA emphasizes the setting up of restorative goals, clear instructions, team building, and good relationships among students, parents, and teachers.

The TA Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports has been established by the Office of Special Education Programs, US Department of Education to give schools capacity-building information and technical assistance for identifying, adapting, and sustaining effective school-wide disciplinary practices.

Social Skills Training (SST)

Social skills training is a type of psychotherapy that works to help people improve their social skills so they can become socially competent. SST is predominantly a behavioural therapy but cognitive therapy can also be used in some situations to maximise the success of SST. This psychotherapy can be done one-on-one or in a group situation.

Solution Team

Solution Team is a series of structured meetings that any educator or counselor can learn to help a student that is being bullied.

This program teaches elementary students to recognize, refuse, and report bullying, be assertive, and build friendships.

Strengths in Motion

This program used a strengths-based approach to improve students’ school experiences.

Student Success Skills is a K-12 evidence-based model that helps students develop key cognitive, social and self-management skills.

Teasing and Bullying Unacceptable Behavior (TAB) program

This program is an intervention procedure for working on bully/victim problems in schools. Instead of punishing the bully, this intervention involves mediation sessions where a teacher expresses sympathy and concern for the victim to show the bully the harm they have done.

Youth Matters (YM)

This curriculum-based bullying prevention program reduces incidents of bullying by 20%.
