What we give
TOMS High Road Backpack purchases help provide the training of
school staff and crisis counselors to help prevent and respond to instances of bullying.
Our partner is focused on training entire school communities — teachers, students and parents — to create bully-free campuses where all students are included.
Bullying response programs make it as easy as possible for students to report bullying and to get the help they need. Text lines provide emotional support to people in crisis, including youth who have suffered from bullying. School staff are also trained in interventions to resolve incidents of bullying and to get students who are stuck in the role of bully or victim the help they need.
