These Bags Help Stop Bullying

Nearly 1 out of every 3 students, aged 12-18 in the United States, reports being bullied.

How bullying prevention works

  1. STEP 1:

    Make a match

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

  2. STEP 2:

    Create safer school environments

    Parents, students and teachers are trained through an integrated series of leadership coaching sessions, staff training and workshops how to interrupt bullying and how to sustain a bully-free campus for the long term.

  3. STEP 3:

    Train Remote Crisis Response Volunteers

    With TOMS support, Crisis Text Line will train crisis counselors through a 34 hour course that includes online modules, office hours, and role-plays.

  4. STEP 4:

    Teens feel supported
    and safer in school

    With the proper prevention and responses techniques in teens' daily lives, we can help reduce up to 90% of incidents of bullying.

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 Bullying Prevention Partners:

  • Find a Need

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

  • Sensitivity

    Understand the complexity and sensitivity of working directly with youth, regardless of circumstance.

  • Long-term Vision

    Provide immediate interventions, but also invest in sustainable solutions for entire schools and offer additional support for individuals.

  • Curriculum

    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

    Have robust training and implementing programs with ongoing supervision for staff.
