Bar All Bullying program
In February 2015, the Allegheny County Bar Association piloted a cyberbullying prevention program for 9th graders at Avonworth High School. The new program is called Bar All Bullying.
The program consists of a panel of speakers including a judge and attorneys who have witnessed the devastating effects of cyberbullying. Alarming statistics about cyberbullying are shared throughout the program.
Each speaker works into his or her comments real life examples of cyberbullying amongst teens along with advice on what to do if you are being bullied or cyberbullied. The speakers also address prepared questions from the students and information taken from a confidential cyberbullying survey filled out by the students prior to the date of the presentation.
Students then have an opportunity to ask additional questions.
The program also includes comments from the principal and local law enforcement.
The program starts and ends with a cyberbullying related music video. For more information, contact
