Bullies Keep Out had the pleasure of not only speaking at our first bullying assembly at U.E.S. Elementary in New Jersey, but we also were able to partner up with one of our celebrity advocates Doreen Taylor (award-winning pop/adult contemporary singer-songwriter). Doreen is also a personal friend of mine as well who I adore, with her own heartbreaking story of bullying. Doreen is highly active in the cause and always willing to do what she can on her part.
We spoke to around 300 5th and 6th graders who were so respectful and took the issue of bullying very serious. The entire school and staff was more than welcoming and truly a school that embraces bullying prevention and intervention. I was honored to be a part of such an amazing program.
