BFF: Be a Friend First and Help Stop Bullying for Good

When girls are mean to one another, you often don’t see anything at all. But you can feel it. The cliques. The eye-rolling. The taunting. The rumors. Making you feel invisible.

It’s still bullying. Right now, when girls are bullied, almost no one intervenes.

It’s time to be part of the change. Sometimes, when girls stand up for one another, the bullying stops immediately. Like, within 10 seconds! BFF gives you the tools to feel safe at school, online, and everywhere in between.

We teach you to recognize bullying. To resolve conflicts. To boost your confidence. To deal with mean girls and cliques. To be a better friend. To have better friends. To find the right words to stop bullying—once and for all.
