Purpose

Bridging Voices in Our Community (BVC) Bullying Prevention serves as a catalyst to help educate and equip the EIU learning community in the area of bullying prevention. We offer support for those we serve; continuously striving to save a life one day at a time. We offer educational services, namely, providing classes, seminars, workshops, training, and conferences about bullying, suicide, and hazing prevention; in addition we offer an anti-bullying curriculum around social and emotional learning. During the Fall Semester, an Annual Bullying Conference is held with a central focus on the Illinois Social and Emotional Learning(SEL) Standards for students  who are entering the field of teaching, counseling or working with children. During the Spring, an event will be held centered around children and youth Social and Emotional Health.  Throughout the year, this organization will focus on helping hurting children and teens in the surrounding communities; especially those who are so often forgoten.
