Be THE Voice ®

Be THE Voice® was born in the Roswell Rotary club in 2014 as a character building initiative using real life experiences to help students understand the power of the Bystander. Initially launched in 8 area schools by RRC Interact clubs, BTV has grown statewide (even extending into 2 Florida schools this past fall). In addition to the founders, 8 RRC members give their time to serve on the leadership of BTV. Many more serve in the role of liason to specific schools.

WHERE THERE IS A BULLY there is a Bystander – and when they intervene, research has proven they will successfully defuse the situation in less than 10 seconds 57% of the time. A pretty impressive statistic and one that became the foundation of our program.

The Be THE Voice® platform is unlike any bully prevention initiative in that it is:

  • Peer led
  • Video based
  • Viewed and promoted weekly
  • Implemented for 3 months
  • Empowers the student bystander to make a difference when witnessing a bullying situation

Students want to help their classmates, they just don’t know HOW. The personal skills & techniques they learn through our campaign empowers them to make a difference in a safe & non-confrontational way. To learn more: www.be-the-voice.org
