Bridgewater State’s MARC Program presentation:

  • Handling bullying and cyberbullying effectively with your child's school
  • Managing children's and teen's screen time and technology use
  • Understanding topics like social media use and sending pictures
  • Encouraging healthy social relationships

MARC's bullying & cyberbullying prevention programs for K-12 students are unique in that most services are delivered by trained graduate and undergraduate students from Bridgewater State University, in a high-status peer model. MARC offers its anti-bullying programs to all K-12 schools in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

MARC is a teaching Center, meaning that we instruct graduate and advanced undergraduate students at Bridgewater State University. These students are powerful tools in any bullying prevention effort, as they are high-status peers and role models to teenage children. They are trained, among other things, to facilitate with groups of teenagers on changing their school climate. They also deliver assembly programs.
