Teens Against Bullying Others

TABO Corrected Logo

Teens Against Bullying Others (TABO) is a peer educator program that teaches
tolerance and methods to deal with bullying. TABO is a diverse group of teens who are tired of seeing bullying in their school’s hallways, tired of seeing bullying in their communities, tired of being bystanders to bullying, and have decided to be proactive in the charge against bullying.

TABO started in 2012 at the Black River Falls High School.  That spring TABO presented to the Black River Falls sixth grade class.  In the fall the curriculum was expanded to seventh and eighth grades. In the fall of 2012 the Black River Falls TABO presented to nearly 400 middle school students.

Thanks to a small grant in 2012 TABO was able to get t-shirts for its members and expand on to other schools in Jackson County. Alma Center-Humbird-Merrillan (Lincoln) was the next school in Jackson County to start-up a TABO group.  In January of 2013 the Lincoln TABO educated over 200 students about bullying and what they can do to stand up to bullying.Lincoln 2013 TABO
