Bullying Prevention

At Kansas Children’s Service League we believe that bullying is a form of child abuse – peer to peer. Each day the impact of bullying is felt in school and community settings across the nation. It negatively affects the lives of both the bullier and the target. No longer simply considered “kids being kids,” bullying and its prevention has become a critical issue for schools, communities, and parents alike. In conjunction with SuEllen Fried, a nationally recognized bullying prevention expert and founder of  BullySafeUSA, KCSL offers an innovative range of learning opportunities for students, educators, parents, and community members. This research-based program has been evaluated by Rutgers University and the University of Kansas. It has proven to be effective in reducing the instances of certain types of bullying behaviors, increasing students’ factual knowledge of bullying and their sense of witness responsibility. To learn how you can begin a bullying prevention program in your school or community or for rates and availability contact us at 877-530-5275 ext. 1343.

If you have questions about a bullying situation please call our 24 Hour Parent & Youth Resource Hotline at 1-800-332-6378 or 1-800-CHILDREN. This anonymous hotline is staffed by trained professionals and volunteers who listen to each caller’s concerns and seek to provide the caller with resources that can assist them.  We strive to provide connections, empower people and transform our culture to one of kindness. The Parent & Youth Resource Hotline has the capability to communicate with all non-English speaking callers. We may also be reached by text or email at
