Definition Of Bullying

Bullying As defined by StopBullying.Gov

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.

In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include:

An Imbalance of Power: Kids who bully use their power such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity to control or harm others. Power imbalances can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people.

Repetition: Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.

Empowered Students:

The TMT Youth Community Foundation provides meaningful after-school programs to at-risk students and students in alternative schools. The project teaches students media production, digital literacy, and exposes them to different career paths and entrepreneurship. In collaboration with Mary Magdeline Ministries, and TooMuchTV Inc.; the TMT Youth Community Foundation facilitated an after-school program with the students of Mary B. Phillips High School. Students wrote and produced their own public service message about the dangers of tobacco. They were also given an opportunity to participate in a televised interview to express their thoughts about the School to Prison Pipeline. The students spoke openly, honestly and intelligently about their experiences. The production is an hour long, honest conversation presently airing on Raleigh Television Network (Channel 10) on Tuesday at 5:00pm and Sunday at 6:30pm.

Empowered Students Wanted To Raise Money and Raise Awareness:

The students of Mary Phillips had been exposed to new career opportunities through the TMT Youth Community Foundation's production training and wanted to continue their training past the small funding experience that had been allotted to them. The Healthy Communities Walk was the perfect solution to raise awareness around an issue they had all been confronted with: Bullying; and the walk would allow them to raise money at the same time.
