Collaborating with other organizations and working to holistically eliminate bullying as a behaviour is a key part of Jer’s Visions work and with that in mind, many of us sit on committees and are affiliated with other organizations. Over the past year, I have been fortunate to sit on the PREVNet’s National Youth Advisory Committee (Promoting Relationships and Eliminating Violence Network). PREVNet is a network of more than 90 leading researchers and 56 national organizations (like Canadian Red Cross and UNICEF) working together to prevent bullying and violence. We are conducting a survey to better understand social media is used by Canadian adolescents. If you are between the ages of 13-15 and have a moment, please check out the below pre-amble and consider filling out the survey.
