Capital Mall and STOMP Out Bullying™ Seek Well-Spoken Olympia Community Teens to Be a Role Model Against Bullying
With 282,000 students physically attacked in secondary schools each month and up to 43 percent of students having been bullied while online, the issue of bullying is a very real reality for many children.
To help bring awareness to this disturbing trend, Capital Mall is partnering with the most influential anti-bullying organization in America, STOMP Out Bullying, and iHeartMedia, to find local teens to become Teen Ambassadors and speak out on this important issue throughout the summer.
This summer, selected Olympia area Teen Ambassadors for STOMP Out Bullying will appear at and participate in Capital Mall’s STOMP Out Bullying Kick-Off Event (Saturday, August 15) and Block Party (Saturday, August 29). They will speak at the event and interact with iHeartMedia DJs to raise awareness around the issue through social media.
To qualify youth must be 13-24 years of age, have good grades, solid leadership skills, have public speaking experience such as being on the debate team or in their school’s speech club, must stand up for others and are established student activists.
Teen Ambassadors are an important part of the STOMP Out Bullying team; they are peer leaders and have the ability to not only make a difference in the lives of others, but make a difference in their own communities as well.
