How bullying prevention giving works

  1. STEP 1:

    Make a Match

    When a customer buys a TOMS High Road Backpack, we provide funds to a Giving Partner for the training of school staff on bullying prevention and response or the training of crisis counselors to staff the Crisis Text Line.

  2. STEP 2:

    Create Safer Schools &
    Train Crisis Volunteers

    Parents, students, teachers or crisis counselors are trained on how to prevent and respond to bullying and how to sustain a bully-free campus for the long term.

  3. STEP 3:

    Students Feel Supported
    and Safe in School

    With the proper prevention and response techniques in students' daily lives, we can help reduce up to 90% of incidents of bullying (Source: De Nike, 2014).

The qualities we look for

At TOMS, we understand that strong partnerships are key. Here are
some of the qualities we look for in our Giving Partners:

  • Find a Need

    Our Giving Partners work in schools and digital spaces where there are high instances of bullying and few programs and resources to help alleviate it.

  • Sensitivity

    Our Giving Partners understand the complexity and sensitivity of working directly with students, regardless of circumstance.

  • Long-term Vision

    Our Giving Partners provide immediate interventions, but also invest in sustainable solutions for entire schools and offer additional support for students.

  • Curriculum

    Our Giving Partners have a strong evidence-based curriculum to help train teachers, parents, students and volunteers on how to accurately prevent and respond to instances of bullying.

  • Provide Training

    Our Giving Partners have robust training and implement programs with ongoing supervision for their staff.
