8 out of 10 LGBTQ students face harassment at school every day just because of who they are. The hostile climate created by homophobic bullying causes LGBTQ students to earn lower grades and opt-out of sports and after school activities. GLSEN is helping. We transform schools to ensure LGBTQ students get equal opportunities at school and their classmates learn respect for all.
No Bully trains schools how to activate student compassion and kindness to stop bullying and cyberbullying. The non-punitive No Bully System® is recognized worldwide for its sustained innovation in bullying prevention. The latest cumulative report shows that schools trained by No Bully are able to remedy over 90% of cases of bullying.
