The Jets Tackle Bullying program presented by Municipal Credit Union (MCU) is a collaboration with STOMP Out Bullying to tackle all forms of bullying by raising awareness, providing tools for educators, and preventing bullying for kids and teens.
The Upstander of the Week Program highlights one student per week during the season across our social media platforms and on the video boards during home games. “When you see someone being bullied and/or cyberbullied and you help them, you stop being a bystander and become an Upstander!” Our School Recognition Program focuses on schools who demonstrate and can articulate how their school combats bullying.
