Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Stand For The Silent (SFTS) program tackles the serious issues of school bullying and teen suicide through factual and heartfelt presentations at schools, churches, and community organizations. Having reached millions of children nationwide and received thousands of life-saving testimonials, we are committed to spreading this crucial message. Bullying causes immense harm, but by increasing awareness, we can help reduce the incidence of suicide.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.


At our core, we advocate through school presentations, raising awareness about bullying's devastating effects and its link to teen suicide. By 2024, we aim to reach 350,000 children, urging them to become allies. Feedback from schools, children, and parents highlights the initiative's life-changing impact.

This year, alongside supporting our backpack program, initiatives for underprivileged children, and bullying allies, we prioritize expanding through Social Bullets. It offers free training materials for educators and parents, drawing on our experience. www.socialbullets.com thrives.


Our rapidly growing scholarship program honors students from donation areas, recognizing their exemplary contributions to ending bullying and personal triumphs. Proudly showcased on our website, we’re awarding more scholarships than ever.
