San Antonio – In the US alone it is estimated that 160,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by their peers. Schools in today's society harbor approximately 2.1 million bullies and astonishingly 2.7 million of their victims, also that 1 in 7 students in Grades K-12 is either a bully or a victim. With the social media numbers growing that is only helping the bullying problem spread at an alarming rate. The Teen Nation Tour – a year-long anti-bullying campaign and concert tour featuring teen recording artists has already proven to be a help in schools who are struggling with this problem. The artist will perform for the first time in Pennsylvania at 10 Pittsburgh area schools and 2 weekend performances reaching more than 12,000 students and Administrators May 12 through May 17.
The Teen Nation Tour is like no other anti-bullying effort. Young, talented recording artists travel the nation performing, educating, and empowering peers through music and personal stories. On weekends, the tour holds public concerts. The school program is 90 minutes of engaging content. Students learn about bullying types, prevention, where to turn when it occurs, and more. The campaign is effective because the artists approach this important topic by relating to youth on their own level, sharing personal experiences and offering tips on how together they can stand and defend against bullying.
