Bullying is a real issue faced every day in our school systems. Stand4Hope is an ontarget
training opportunity that has purpose and a real life message. Both students and
adults can benefit from the program. The high tech approach is spot on for where we are in
society. It’s engaging and holds the attention of the viewer and is one of the only resources,
of the hundreds I have viewed, that is meaningful and has the potential to make a true and
lasting impact in our schools.

Fully understanding the bully dynamic vs. normal peer aggression is a critical task. Doing
so amid an organized competitive climate is even more so. Stand4Hope provides exceptional
training and should be viewed by all athletic personnel nationwide.

Wow! This teacher training is hard hitting but emotional, finding a balance between
being attention getting, while still eliciting an empathetic reaction. It’s informative but also
interesting which increases retention. It covers EVERYTHING including all types of bullying,
effects of bullying, possible outcomes, and actions an educator/adult can take, but it does so
in a miraculously small amount of time (making it very appealing as training). In short, it’s

As an educator, you see constant bullying in the classroom. Each student responds to
bullying differently. This program trains teachers on how to respond to all kinds of situations-
-no matter how big or small--and would be more than useful for professional development
for school personnel. It is something that is truly becoming a necessity. Words and actions
are becoming more hurtful, and students and teachers need this tool to use in defense against
bullying in our schools today.

Powerfully informing, this training was very well produced and covered all topics. I
have been trying to help my school become more aware of the issues dealing with bullying,
especially cyberbulling. It was very heartbreaking to see the clips of the various media reports
about students who had taken their lives due to bullying, and I believe all educators need to
see this video. Even students could benefit from the personal stories shared by victims and
their families. Bullying can be stopped if we all work in unity.

The Stand4Hope Anti-Bullying training is amazing! Every teacher in the nation should
view it. From the student testimonials to the information presented, this program in its
entirety is heart wrenching and motivating. As a teacher, I feel that schools should take a
more active role in stopping bullying. This is where it should start by adults involved with
students becoming proactive and educated. This is also where the madness should stop by
becoming more aware of the problems, knowing how to intervene, and showing our future
generations there is a better way. This program does it all!

As the principal at an early childhood campus, housing grades pre-K through first.
You would not think that bullying would be a problem with such young children, but it
is. I have seen the harmful effects first hand, and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that
something must be done to address this problem.
It is my belief that we must start addressing the bullying epidemic with our youngest students. As an administrator, I am continually looking for training materials for my staff on this issue. The Stand4Hope training offers the perfect blend of information and emotional content to address this need. Every grade school employee can benefit from this training. If we start our students off in a proper environment with a well trained staff, future incidences of inappropriate behaviors can be minimized.
