Anti-bullying funding — a community effort

TRAVERSE CITY — Conflict Resolution Services of Traverse City raised nearly all of the funds needed to implement the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program at Traverse City Area Public Schools.

The group raised $90,000 for the program. The money goes to pre-implementation consultation, training and follow-up consultations, as well as surveys to measure efficacy, and other materials.

Conflict Resolution Services also plans on raising money to put the anti-bullying program in other schools in the Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District.

The majority of the sum was paid for by Rotary Charities, which offered a $65,000 matching grant for the program.

Other groups that contributed to Conflict Resolution Services efforts are: The United Way of Northwest Michigan; Rotary Club of Traverse City; Cherryland Electric Cooperative; and The Community Foundation, through the Boy’s and Girl’s Club and Grand Traverse Families in Action for Youth.

TCAPS Partners in Education Program raised an additional $37,200 for in-school posters, badges and kickoff event materials. Several community groups contributed to that effort, including Rotary Charities, Team Elmer’s, Grand Traverse Band, TBAISD, Grand Traverse Regional Community Foundation, ATA Martial Arts, Brownwood Farms, Cherryland Electric, Department of Civil Rights and individuals.
