Family Resource Center South Atlantic Teens Against Bullying
This is a teen-empowered program with three levels that focus on meeting the needs of all youth victimized by bullying.
The Youth Council (ages 10-13) and Teen Peer Leaders (ages 14-17) develop skills in a biweekly support group to advocate for themselves and peers to respond to bullying effectively and prevent further incidences.
Advocates attend school appointments and facilitate the youth (ages 6-17) in navigating the system, making referrals to therapeutic services and informing them of legal rights.
TAB raises awareness in the community about victimization through bullying, as well as assist in the ID of potential victims of bullying through the use of awareness campaigns, ID campaigns, and collaboration with schools and other youth organizations. The program offers workshops to inform parents.
