How bullying prevention giving works
Make a Match
When a customer buys a TOMS High Road Backpack, we provide funds to a Giving Partner for the training of school staff on bullying prevention and response or the training of crisis counselors to staff the Crisis Text Line.
Create Safer Schools &
Train Crisis Volunteers
Parents, students, teachers or crisis counselors are trained on how to prevent and respond to bullying and how to sustain a bully-free campus for the long term.
Students Feel Supported
and Safe in School
With the proper prevention and response techniques in students' daily lives, we can help reduce up to 90% of incidents of bullying (Source: De Nike, 2014).
The qualities we look for
At TOMS, we understand that strong partnerships are key. Here are
some of the qualities we look for in our Giving Partners:
Find a Need
Our Giving Partners work in schools and digital spaces where there are high instances of bullying and few programs and resources to help alleviate it.
Our Giving Partners understand the complexity and sensitivity of working directly with students, regardless of circumstance.
Our Giving Partners provide immediate interventions, but also invest in sustainable solutions for entire schools and offer additional support for students.
Our Giving Partners have a strong evidence-based curriculum to help train teachers, parents, students and volunteers on how to accurately prevent and respond to instances of bullying.
Our Giving Partners have robust training and implement programs with ongoing supervision for their staff.
