The United Against Bullying Grant Program Enables Change
Safe Fleet and its brands invite you to apply for a United Against Bullying (UAB) Grant to empower young people in your community to end bullying. The Grant Program is open to all school districts and organizations working with students in the United States and Canada. The application process is open from Monday, January 9, 2017 until Friday, March 31st, 2017.
The sole purpose of the annual Grant Program and all UAB campaigns is to start conversations on kindness and bullying, to empower students to stand up to abusive behavior, and to end bullying. We recognise that by working together, by making funds available to you for kindness and anti-bullying programs, we can reach many more students. One in three or four children will be negatively impacted by bullying. This is a reality for kids today and one that we all have the power to influence with our actions.
The annual UAB Grant Program will award a total of $50,000 to the most inspired and detailed proposals for a new anti-bullying or kindness initiative, to enhance or expand an existing program, or to purchase equipment to help address bullying and ensure the safety of students on the school bus.
We Want to Team Up with You
From interviews of previous grant winners we have heard of amazing changes in the school community simply by encouraging students to watch for acts of kindness and rewarding those actions. Young students are happy with prizes of pencils, rubber balls and bracelets, lanyards, etc. The older students of one school negotiated homework passes and extra time on recess for their prizes. A school-wide program of this kind involves teachers, administrators, and students. This particular school also involved the families, local businesses and legislators by listing volunteer opportunities in their monthly Character Calendar.
