As cyberbullying grows across the world, several organizations have been established to educate the public on preventative measures and offer support to cyberbullying victims. Read on to learn about some of these organizations.

Online Help For Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying organizations are available online, which makes them easily accessible to people around the world. One of the biggest outreach goals of such organizations is to provide comfort and relief to victims of cyberbullying. Many anti-cyberbullying organizations are non-profit groups, bringing together professional speakers, educators, parents, victims, and others to provide education on cyberbullying and foster preventative measures. Some common services include:

  • Online articles defining cyberbullying and how to prevent it. Many release newsletters and frequently update the content on their websites to reflect new cases, events, and general materials on cyberbullying. Blogs are also heavily featured.
  • Virtual counseling and advice on how to end cyberbullying. In addition to making people aware of cyberbullying, these organizations seek to help the victims.
  • Event organization. This spreads awareness of cyberbullying and allows victims to share their stories as well as receive support.
  • Engagement with organizations including schools. These meetings make people aware of cyberbullying and give pointers on developing a welcoming atmosphere for all people.

Below are a few specific organizations with additional resources.

EndCyberBullying.org (ETCB)

The ETCB Organization's goal is to prevent cyberbullying through sharing the stories of victims and analyzing them, both to figure out how they were bullied and why it was so hurtful. On the website, in their latest news section, viewers can read featured stories that are updated regularly. The site also offers legal information on cyberbullying, which is useful for taking action against bullies. The organization also offers info via Twitter and other social media, in addition to informational videos on YouTube.

StompOutBullying.org

In addition to hosting events and providing cyberbullying info, Stomp Out Bullying offers the chance for cyberbullying victims to receive support virtually. The live HelpChat Line is a free service that kids aged 13 to 24 can use to gain immediate reassurance and advice on their bullying problems. One of the primary goals of this asset is to prevent suicide. A detailed schedule is listed on the website. Stomp Out Bullying also provides the opportunity to take action against cyberbullying as a teen ambassador. Enlisting teens from the 13 to 24 age range, teen ambassadors are tasked with spreading awareness of cyberbullying through social media and by being peer leaders in their community. It's a great way to make kids proactive against persecution and develop effective leadership skills.
