“BTV is a wonderful program already making a difference in our schools. As a student-driven initiative, BTV empowers all students to help stop bullying and not just stand by as a passive observer. Everyone could use the skills being introduced through the Be THE Voice program! Thank you!”

I love the Be The Voice campaign because it gives students the confidence to stick up for each other in bullying situations.  It has made a great impact here at Hembree Springs.

BTV has definitely had a positive impact on our students, teachers and staff. The students look forward to the videos and the classroom discussions that follow. Students are reminded to Be THE Voice by their peers who are a select group of 4th and 5th graders that are a part of Vickery Mill’s Wise Council. We broadcast the BTV videos every Wednesday during our school announcements and our Wise Council and PBIS team wear our BTV shirts to show our unity.  BTV is an excellent initiative that will have a lasting impact on our students as they navigate through life.

I love the Be THE Voice program because it strengthens the voice of those who normally wouldn’t speak up, those who feel helpless, and those who think there is nothing they can do in bullying situations. I love it because the program does more than just give a voice to the voiceless, it promotes the best aspects of social emotional learning.

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.

CMS is fortunate to have Be THE Voice as a catalyst for conversation around bullying. The videos are relevant to our students and prompt them to reflect, ask questions and have peer dialogue about social topics. It touches all students regardless of who they are as we all have either experienced acts of bullying or know someone who has. The Be THE Voice campaign has been a positive and effective addition to our character education focus during homeroom.

SHANTAE STREETER, MAY 2019
Teacher, Elkins Pointe Middle School  Roswell, GA
I absolutely love the BTV Campaign and all that it has done for our school! This campaign has really made a positive impact on our student body and the kids enjoy seeing actual videos from standout athletes and those that have even had someone to stand in the gap for them by “being the voice”.  The videos include role models that every student can easily find themselves represented and each Friday kids look forward to the next video and discussion questions where they get to share their ideas and feelings about what they learned. Our very own Interact club loves launching the campaign each year at the buses, passing out stickers, wearing their cool BTV t-shirts and getting the school excited about doing the right thing.

We have been using BTV at The Cottage School and love it! The program is easy to use and has benefited our community tremendously! We highly recommended this program! -The Counseling Department at The Cottage School

KINDRA SMITH, FEBRUARY 2017
Principal, Elkins Pointe Middle School  Roswell, GA
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

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.

Your progress with Be THE Voice is impressive. Thank you for inviting me to hear the latest news on your program at the Roswell Rotary meeting today. It was great to learn that you are now expanding into Barrow County too.  The students who spoke from the two schools were very articulate and committed to empowering their peers to Be THE Voice in their schools.  This program is providing life long skills to help students deal with bullies. Those are skills we could all use.  I’m thankful for being included and I hope that you will be involved with our organization as well.

ANGELIQUE HAYES, JANUARY 2018

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.

CHRISTINE ANDERSON, JANUARY 2017
Teacher, Hembree Springs Elementary  Roswell, GA
Students at HSES are benefiting greatly from the Be the Voice Program. With this being our second year, the message is becoming more and more a part of our school’s way of life. The videos are interesting and relevant. We are grateful to be a BTV school. Thank you Roswell Rotary!

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.

LIBBY SWINSON, JANUARY 2017
Head Counselor, The Cottage School  Roswell, GA
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.
