The Challenge

KHP Take Action

Help Stop Bullying! Students and Classrooms across Canada Join the Kids Help Phone Bullying Awareness and Prevention Challenge this November

Starting November 1st and for the entire month of November 2016, elementary, middle, and high school students across Canada can answer Kids Help Phone’s Bullying Awareness & Prevention Challenge questions on WorldVuze (tagged KidsHelpPhone) to help stop bullying.

In recognition of Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week this November (November 13 – 19, 2016), Kids Help Phone invites students across the country to share their perspectives about what bullying means to them, its impact on their school community, and what can be done to create positive change.

Kids Help Phone wants to hear from students themselves so they can understand bullying from their perspective in order to better support and advocate for youth to prevent bullying now and in the future.
