No Bully’s mission is to bring innovative, sustainable solutions to student bullying, harassment and violence in schools. We envision schools where kindness triumphs over prejudice and intolerance. The United States has some of the highest levels of student bullying and conflict of any industrialized nation worldwide. Each day thousands of students in the USA refuse to go to school because they dread the physical and verbal aggression of their peers, and the isolation that comes from being the target of rumors and cyber-bullying.
No Bully partners with schools and school districts to implement a Bullying Response System designed to match the intensity or severity of any incident of bullying or harassment. We developed this non-punitive system through our work in hundreds of schools. Doctoral research shows that Solution Team resolves student bullying in over 80% of the cases and this holds true three months later.
