Protecting our Native youth through bullying prevention

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. This means there are two more weeks to raise awareness and share prevention techniques to make our communities a safe environment for Native youth.

What is bullying?

Before we can prevent bullying, we have to first know how to identify it. Bullying can happen in a lot of different ways. But based on a definition from the Native Ed Review, bullying can include any of the following acts:

  • Online or in person aggressive behaviors committed by another youth or group of youth
  • One or more students tease, threaten, spread rumors or physically hit, shove, or hurt another student repeatedly
  • Shunning peers and encouraging mental or physical isolation

How to revamp your Club’s website

Ready to try something new to better market your Club, but don’t know where to start? Try updating your website like the Boys & Girls Club of the Leech Lake Area. When the Minnesota Club noticed they weren’t getting as many visitors as usual, they decided to makeover their website to give their online presence a boost.

It worked.

Since launching their new site, the Club has noticed an increase in online traffic. A simple refresh was all they needed to gain traction.
