Student Assemblies, Teacher In-Services & Parent Programs Work!
A recent study reflected the urgency of appropriate action by schools to “…identify, classify, and prioritize the components of bullying prevention programs in an effort to empower educators to reduce the frequency, severity, and pervasive nature of bullying in elementary through middle-school-aged students” (Banks, 2011, p.59). “I Am Unafraid” has been specifically designed via current research to successfully empower students, teachers, and parents. How successful has it been? Global studies suggest a 50% REDUCTION IN BULLYING INCIDENCES (DiBasilio, 2008; Packman, Lepkowski, Overton, & Smaby, 2005; Olweus, 1993).

The “I Am Unafraid” anti-bullying program takes the best practices and elements of our STAMP Out Bullying program and frames them in a more positive platform that is consistent with Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports (PBIS) . Those self-empowerment, research-validated, anti-bullying elements are;
A – Avoid bullies
F – Find a friend
R – Report bullying
A – Act confident
The new strategy will continue to utilize the characteristics of engagement, interaction, comedy, story-telling, and research-validated education, along with the addition of age-appropriate music video elements. Also, JBP has developed the “I Am Unafraid” anti-bullying curriculum. Kindergarten through 5th graders will sing the songs, dance along, and be captivated by the animations that are set in 5 CD & DVD presentations. Plus, supporting resources include “I Am Unafraid” wristbands, stickers, posters, banners, t-shirts, lanyards and many free supports including P.R.T.S. (Parent Pages, Resource References, Teacher Talk, Student Sheets). See a sample of the music videos, video books, etc. at IAmUnafraid.com.
