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.
Effective prevention programs are focused on training an entire school community — teachers, students and parents — on how to create a bully-free campus where all students are included.
Bullying response programs make it as easy as possible for students to report bullying and get the help they need.
