Social impact

iBully...and so do you!

 

Time moves fast and before we know it, these kids with bright eyes will be adults with big ideas – ideas that will impact us directly, as well as the world we share.  Because our world grows more complicated every day, it is imperative that we provide young people with the support and tools needed to navigate. 

 

This show was created to provide students and teachers with tools for managing negative self-judgement, bullying, and pressure from adults.  With an increase in teen depression, anxiety and suicides in recent years, it is clear that students need more support in developing resiliency. 

To make this rather heady, abstract subject accessible to kids, the shows lessons were shaped around Miguel Ruiz’s Four Agreements:

1. Be impeccable with your word

2. Don’t take anything personally

3. Don’t make assumptions

4. Always do your best. 

When practiced, these simple resolutions can resolve conflicts, both internal and external, and develop a resilient growth mindset.  

We believe that transformation starts with Self, and it is our hope that iBully will support both students and teachers in developing the skills needed to build a compassionate, innovative future for us all.
