The buzz is building for NCCJ’s national youth-led YES! campaign to end bullying. With its timely topic of reducing bullying in high schools; its unique focus on youth leadership development; and integration of technology, social media, and the arts—this campaign promises to generate excitement and results.
We invite your organization or business to be a visible supporter of this initiative as a sponsor of the campaign. Join our lead sponsors Comcast, The Newman’s Own Foundation, and Aetna in investing in the positive power of youth. For more information on the YES! campaign, please see the program overview below.
Your support will send a powerful message to youth that their voices and their ideas matter. Teens are very savvy about marketing. In addition to preferring quality products and responsible businesses, they appreciate when companies to do something positive in the community. By partnering with NCCJ, your organization will enjoy national visibility in association with a pro-active initiative effectively tackling perhaps the biggest issue facing high school students nationwide. Investing in their leadership and their safe futures will be well received by the thousands of teens who will participate in this multi-year campaign.
For 20 years, NCCJ has helped middle- and high-school students understand the origins and effects of prejudice, recognize the harmful effects of stereotypes, learn skills to decrease bullying in their schools, and become youth leaders. An established community resource with highly respected, popular youth programs, NCCJ is well positioned to produce this campaign. With its timeless mission “to fight bias, bigotry, and racism, and promote understanding and respect among all races, religions, and cultures,” NCCJ has been opening minds and opening hearts since 1927. The campaign is led by youth from NCCJ’s ANYTOWN program—a nationally recognized diversity, leadership, and social justice program for high-school age students—and a team of adult advisors.
