Bully-Free NOVA, A Community of Respect
We are in the process of scheduling our next Bullying 101 Facilitators Training. If you would like to be notified when the next training is scheduled, please email Pattie Simcic at Patricia.Simcic@fairfaxcounty.gov.
FPY launched its Bully-Free Northern Virginia: A Community of Respect in November of 2012. The FPY Bullying Prevention Team offers "Bullying Prevention 101", a tool to create a community of respect.
FPY wants to equip youth serving individuals with the necessary tools and skills to teach members of their organization or faith community how to prevent bullying and intervene in bullying situations.
The program’s intention is to increase awareness and empathy, to provide protection for those involved in bullying situations, to provide tools and skills to prevent bullying, to provide tools and skills to intervene in bullying situations, to assist partners in developing a more comprehensive strategy to prevent and address bullying in an atmosphere of mutual understanding and respect.
