Students will make short 30 second to one minute video Public Service Announcements (PSA) on anti-bullying and/or being a proactive bystander. These can be done in small groups or as an entire class. The Advocates will provide slides connecting the PSA to The Advocates, so viewers will know where they can go for further resources or assistance with these issues. PSA’s will show for a period of approximately 2 months at Big Wood Cinemas as well as on The Advocates’ websites, in classrooms and on YOUTUBE. PSA’s will raise awareness of bullying and bystander intervention strategies.

The Advocates will provide a “movie premier” night or nights to view selected PSA’s. Students who produced the selected PSA’s will have the opportunity to discuss their work and their ideas about what a safe and healthy community means to them.
