Founded in 2006, PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center actively leads social change, so that bullying is no longer considered an accepted childhood rite of passage. PACER provides innovative resources for students, parents, educators, and others, and recognizes bullying as a serious community issue that impacts education, physical and emotional health, and the safety and well-being of students.
How does PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center help?

Inspires entire communities to get involved with social change and promoting kindness, acceptance, and inclusion
Offers classroom activities, toolkits, and lesson plans for educators
Provides informative guides for parents to understand the dynamics of bullying, help their children through bullying situations, and learn how to communicate with school staff
Educates students with age-appropriate resources and information to manage bullying situations, be supportive of their peers, and take action to prevent bullying in their school, community, and online
Creates school-wide opportunities to address bullying, including National Bullying Prevention Month in October and Unity Day, initiatives both founded by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center
Joe Cavanaugh met a student who told him about being bullied at school. She said, “There are these kids at school who make fun of me every day. Can you do anything to stop them?” This question was the catalyst that inspired Joe to launch Youth Frontiers.
Youth Frontiers partners with schools to build communities where students thrive socially, emotionally and academically. They offer one-day retreats on timeless values like kindness, courage and respect for students in fourth–12th grades.
- After Youth Frontiers’ Kindness Retreat, 94% of fourth and fifth graders are more confident to help someone who is being picked on.
- Students reported a reduction in bullying after the Courage Retreat.
- After the Respect Retreat, 85% of students show more respect for others who may not share their views.
