GRANTS PASS, Ore.-- On Monday people were encouraged to wear blue.

 

It’s part of a worldwide effort for bullying prevention, and wearing blue is one way to get people involved and committed to changing the culture.

 

Local kids out of the Grants Pass Boys and Girls Club of the Rogue Valley signed pledges to prevent bullying.  

 

8th Grader Jasmine Ramon says, "We're signing pledges to end bullying, I think that's a good thing because a lot of bullying is happening at school." 

 

4th Grader Ethan Rapin says, "It's about teaching you to not bully kids and to help kids if you see them getting bullied."

 

Jasmine Ramon says, "If you see it I would try to tell a teacher, if you get in the middle you become a part of it."

 

Ethan says, "Say stop or break it up and if they're not stopping go tell a teacher."

 

It’s a topic the club works on teaching kids about year-round.

 

Because bullying can happen anywhere, anytime.

 

Clarissa Law, Program Director for the Grants Pass Club says, "Were trying very hard to help them learn when it’s appropriate to come talk to a staff member, to communicate with words and not actions, and it’s something we work daily.”
