E-teen Leader Requirements

 

 

 

Beyond Bullies E-teen Leaders' are required to provide a safe, caring and friendly space for bullied teens online. Many times, admitting to being afraid to go to school or to talk to an adult is very uncomfortable. We are looking for teens who want to make a difference and help bullied teens get the information and resources they need in order to help them feel safe in school, at home, in their communities or when they go online.  The chats are non-judgemental and each person must be willing to be open-minded and sensitive at all times. So common is the feeling of not wanting to go to school, but it can be even worse when you're being bullied or cyberbullied. .

E-teen leaders can build build character, tolerance and leadership skills. Students who become peer mentors with Beyond Bullies can use the skills they have learned when they apply for college, in their day-to-day lives and when they tranisiton into the workforce.
