Jets Tackle Bullying

Community Programs

 

The New York Jets have teamed up with STOMP Out Bullying to tackle all forms of bullying and are committed to raising awareness, providing tools for educators and preventing bullying for kids and teens.

Through this collaboration, the Jets have made available at no cost a Jets branded STOMP Out Bullying Educator’s Prevention Toolkit to over 1,000 schools in the tri-state area. This toolkit enables educators to create meaningful dialogue, educate students through proven Social Emotional Learning methods, adopt character building in schools and involve both students and faculty in working together to change school climate.

Schools that sign up for the toolkit are invited to our annual Educator’s Symposium designed to provide teachers and administrators resources to improve the culture at their schools. Schools that attend the symposium are then given additional opportunities to engage with the Jets through our Upstander of the Week and School Recognition programs.

The Upstander of the Week Program highlights one student per week during the season across our social media platforms and on the video boards during home games. “When you see someone being bullied and/or cyberbullied and you help them, you stop being a bystander and become an Upstander!” Our School Recognition Program focuses on schools who demonstrate and can articulate how their school combats bullying. Selected schools receive a fun filled assembly featuring a Jets player.

For opportunities to activate with the Jets in the ways mentioned above please sign up today for a toolkit below!
