Make Bullying History Foundation has what we believe, measurable and very achievable objectives for the remainder of 2016 and on to 2017.
Our goal is to serve 80 schools across Australia serving over 50,000 students, teachers and parents through anti-bullying seminars and workshops.
Through our SAFEHEART domestic Abuse initiative, we aim to deliver 200 Brave packs to 200 women who are experiencing or escaping Domestic Abuse.
To deliver these services we need to raise $120K in the next financial year, we need your help.
Together, we can Make History.
Make Bullying History Foundation provides tried, proven anti-bullying presentations, seminars and workshops for students and parents and professional Development workshops for teachers. Leadership is also high on the priority list, that’s why we train leaders.
PRESENTATIONS – These are specific keynote presentations for school, youth and college / University conferences or school assemblies. 45mins to 1 hour in length, short, sharp, polished, and fun. Easy to book, a pleasure to experience.
SEMINARS FOR STUDENTS - Make Bullying History seminars are tailored to Primary school, middle school and High school age groups, from years 5 & 6 through to year 12. Age specific, time-frame designed to cater for the appropriate age group. Covering issues such as what is and is not bullying, why do people bully, self esteem, self worth, contributing factors that effect self worth, how to disarm bullying, goal setting and more.
SEMINARS FOR PARENTS – Make Bullying History Parenting seminars are designed to empower and encourage parents on their incredible role and responsibility as parents and the amazing influence and impact they have on their children. 2 hours of entertaining and engaging information. A must for parents who care for their children.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS FOR TEACHERS – Teaching is often a thankless occupation. Teachers are all too often blamed for the problems at schools and rarely thanked for the solutions and positive action. The PD workshops encourage teachers to remember their indelible impact they have on students lives and the difference they are making. Time has a way of revealing influence, and teachers are great infuencers.
LEADERSHIP TRAINING – Student leaders regularly move on to become community leaders. Make Bullying History Foundation is passionate when it comes to equipping students with powerful leadership tools enabling them to make a positive impact and change throughout their young lives. These Leadership workshops are powerful and effective.

THE TEENAGE SUICIDE RATE USED TO BE 370 YOUNG LIVES LOST ANNUALLY IN AUSTRALIA SINCE 2007.
IN 2012 THAT RATE ROSE TO 450 AS ANNOUNCED BY THE AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER JULIA GILLARD ON MARCH 16, 2013.
For each of these 450 precious lives lost, 9 young people attempted suicide. That is over 3000 young people each year arriving at a point of such hopelessness that death seems to be the only option. This should not ever be the case. Many of the cases investigated over time have shown that bullying was a significant influence on the young persons life that potentially drove them to attempt the unthinkable.
Our presenters are effective communicators adding value to young people's lives, offering hope for families, encouragement and information to teachers, making a positive difference.
