BFF Helps Stop Bullying Before it Starts

For Girls Blog has a post on the BFF (Be a Friend First) initiative. BFF takes Cadettes on the aMAZE! Leadership Journey, where they learn what to do if they encounter bullying at school or online, and how to stop it before it starts. They also discover that when a girl intervenes on behalf of another girl, bullying stops almost immediately.

Cadettes on the aMAZE! Leadership Journey focus on building self-confidence, being a better friend, and having better friends.

More often than not, when girls are bullied, almost no one intervenes.

It’s time to be part of the change. But when girls stand up for one another, the bullying stops immediately. BFF gives you the tools to feel safe at school, online, and everywhere in between.
