Don’t Be A Monster seeks to improve the lives of youth in America by conducting targeted outreach and educational activities in schools. The program features an hour-long presentation that delves into the implications and consequences of bullying in an effort to raise awareness about the seriousness of the issue and to prevent it from continuing, which includes addressing issues that may already be present in school. Tools used to deliver the program’s message include a six-minute video, enthusiastic presenters, engaging presentation, and a symbolic character named Frank who represents people who are a little different. Frank makes guest appearances at all of the schools.

“Don’t Be A Monster seeks to empower students to stand up for their friends and peers, build cohesive and caring communities, and report issues to trusted adults,” said Erin Kelley, program director for Don’t Be A Monster. “We are proud to have had the opportunity to empower 166,000 students in 269 schools across the nation and look forward to bringing this message to even more students this year.”
