Volunteer Opportunities

STOMP Out Bullying™ 
A national anti-bullying and cyberbullying program for kids and teens is a signature program of Love Our Children USA. Created in 2005, it focuses on reducing and preventing bullying, cyberbullying and other digital abuse, educating against homophobia, racism and hatred, decreasing school absenteeism, and deterring violence in schools, online and in communities across the country. It includes educating kids and teens in school and online, providing help for those in need and at risk of suicide, raising awareness, peer mentoring programs in schools, public service announcements by noted celebrities, and social media campaigns. An additional focus educates parents on how to keep their children safe and responsible online. www.stompoutbullying.org

So many kids and teens are bullied and cyberbullied and many need a place to turn …whether it’s someone to talk to or to reach out in case of crisis and suicidal thoughts. Thus we are in need of junior or senior undergrads and graduate students who would like to volunteer virtually on our 24/7 help/chat line.

Here is our link to our volunteer posting on volunteermatch.com http://www.volunteermatch.org/search/opp836862.jsp
We will be doing a training in the next month here in the city and could use several committed volunteers.
