PA CARES: Bullying Prevention in Pennsylvania Schools

PACARES_HF

PA CARES (Creating an Atmosphere of Respect and Environment for Success) was an initiative that helped to decrease bullying behaviors; enhance intervention efforts; provide safe and productive learning environments; and improve school response and reaction to bullying by establishing school-based bullying prevention programs. PA CARES was funded by the Highmark Foundation.

The Highmark Foundation provided Pennsylvania elementary, middle and high schools – with a total student population of more than 180,000 – with the tools and resources needed to implement the OBPP through the PA CARES initiative.
