The Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention Task Force announced today that it will begin accepting submissions from the public of field-based practices to combat bullying. Entries that are approved for posting on the websitewww.bullyinginfo.orgcan include formats ranging from research articles to youth-produced public service announcements (PSAs). All materials and resources posted must be free of charge and hosted on either a government or non-profit website.
"We know that many programs are successfully addressing bullying and want to share those materials with others," says Kevin Jennings, assistant deputy secretary for the U.S. Department of Education's Education Department's Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools who also chairs the Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention Task Force. "Our goal is to create an easy, central location for anyone to access information."
Findyouthinfo.gov, an inter-agency federal government website that provides information on creating, maintaining and strengthening effective youth programs, already accepts submissions of evaluated, evidence-based programs on bullying for its program directory. In addition to information on bullying, submissions also are accepted for a range of other youth topics such as health and nutrition, positive youth development, substance use, parenting, and more. To submit field-based material to Bullyinginfo.org and/or Findyouthinfo.gov, please visit www.findyouthinfo.gov/resourcesubmission.aspx. To submit evaluated evidence-based programs, please visit www.findyouthinfo.gov/nominate.shtml.
Inclusion of materials on the websites does not indicate an endorsement by the federal government.
