Youngstown students open anti-bullying project to surrounding communities

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A group of Youngstown students are working to stop bullying, and want their school project to involve the entire community.

At Tuesday's school board meeting, the students said they plan to have a bullying prevention event that will be free to the public. Students who attend can design tee-shirts to promote the initiative. They can also talk with one another about what problems they face at school.

"I just hate to see other students being bullied, and the other students think they are invisible and they think they're alone but they're not," said Senior Charee Woods. "There are a lot of people that have been bullied."

The event will take place Saturday, March 1st from 12-2 p.m. at The Spanish Evangelical Church on Keystone Avenue.
