Be The Voice has helped our students at Mountain Park Elementary have a common language and expectation around standing up for others. The students enjoy the videos and discussions are quick and meaningful.

BTV has been a powerful campaign here at Elkins. The EPMS Interact Club is proud to stand behind BTV and all that it stands for. Kids are standing up for one another and “being the voice”. We love it!!!!

Be The Voice is a great program! Our 4th and 5th graders have participated in Be The Voice for the past two years. The videos are a great starting point for meaningful conversations about empathy and ways to advocate for self and others. We appreciate Roswell Rotary sponsoring the Be The Voice campaign.

Head Counselor, The Cottage School
I have been in education for 36 years and this is the first program that truly addresses what a bystander can do to help a victim of bullying. All of our students from grades 4-12 have been active in the BTV campaign for 2 years and it has made a huge difference in the way they treat their fellow peers and view each others differences. As educators, we appreciate the ease of implementing the program and how involved our students are in “Being the Voice” at school but also out in their community. Thank you so much to the Roswell Rotary Club for bringing this program to our school.

KINDRA SMITH, FEB 16TH 2017
Principal, Elkins Pointe Middle School
BTV has been a highly effective program that has changed the game for the overall culture of our school. The implementation is effortless and the returns are HUGE! Our students and staff love this program because the focus is NOT on the victim. This program allows the bystander to step up and speak out on things they see wrong happening to innocent peers. It allows them to feel good about being a hero and being a part of the solution and not the problem. This program is a MUST for every school K-12 world-wide! Give it a shot and see how easy it is for students to take a lead in creating a school culture that is filled with kindness, caring and respect. EPMS Principal Kindra Smith, Ed.S Roswell, Georgia

Principal, Thomas County Middle School
Our students at Thomas County Middle School have benefited greatly from BTV. The videos were easy to use and provided a reliable way to communicate to over 800 students. Our students in our Broadcast/video class recorded lead-ins for the sessions. BTV provided a common language for our students and worked to increase awareness of the impact of bullying. Thanks BTV.

Teacher, Crabapple Middle School
The BTV effort has had a very positive effect on our student body at CMS. Students within the Interact Club have been glad to take the reins and lead, speak and introduce the videos for BTV. Our administration, counselors, and teachers all appreciated the professional and engaging interviews with celebrities that were available to choose from and share with our students. Many worthwhile conversations were started as we used BTV as part of our character education portion of homeroom during fall semester. I am confident that the BTV campaign is making a difference in the lives of some of our middle school students as their fellow students choose to step up up and be the voice that stops bullying.

The students at MPMS have truly benefited and grown since we started the “Be The Voice” program. I can’t wait for the results of the post survey.
