Turning Bullies into Buddies
This literacy program brings literature-based social and emotional learning to children in afterschool programs to help them increase their vocabulary and reading comprehension.
“Before TBIB, I felt scared to stand up for myself. It was difficult. If we didn’t have TBIB, I’d still be scared and bullied. Now, I can stand up for myself. I don’t let kids get to me. I feel different. I feel more confident and much smarter. My grades went up. Life is better.”
– Ashleigh, TBIB Participant
“The program helped me stop bullying. I wasn’t thinking of other people’s feelings. I only thought about myself. I realized I was being mean and hanging out with the wrong people. I decided I was going to find a different crew (group of friends).”
–Juan, TBIB Participant
