BULLYPROOF America was started to educate kids, families, and communities to curb this problem.
The formation of BULLYPROOF America is meant to widen the reach of the prevention efforts, giving local partners the ability to work with more kids, schools, and organizations. Each partner has a goal of education 1,000 kids by the end of 2016.
“It’s a lofty goal, no doubt,” says Alex Changho, founder of BULLYPROOF America. “But it’s one of passion. I was bullied as a kid, as were many of the authors in the books. This is something we can do together to change lives in our local communities.”
Lechtenberg, owner of Personal Mastery Martial Arts, is no stranger to bully prevention. For decades he has taught personal safety, bullying prevention, and martial arts to the local community. He is the best-selling author of The Anti-Bully Program and the Anti-Cyber Bully Program, as well as several other books focused on personal safety.
“Brett is a natural choice to serve on the board,” says Changho. “His wisdom and knowledge about bullying prevention has already had a huge impact in his hometown of Sandy, and we look to bring that experience to help even more communities across the United States and even worldwide.”
