Respect For All Week

Brooklyn: New Utrecht High School PSA on Bullying

Students involved in the Peer Mediation program at New Utrecht High School created this presentation to raise awareness regarding bullying. The story is told one word at a time. It depicts a situation where a teenager has been threatened. The video continues to focus on the victim with images of their emotions and actions that follow. We are left with a teenager that has been the victim of violence. Now suddenly, a door opens, an ally appears, offering an ear and a helping hand; the victim is no longer alone. The video continues to show how students, one at a time, can help. The Peer Mediation program and its students are a haven to those who feel they are alone.

This story is part of a series to promote the ongoing school-based programs and activities through the Respect For All initiative.
