Bullying on the rise: Get our new Bullying Prevention Guide


October is Bullying
Prevention Awareness Month


Up to 1 in 3 U.S. students say they have been bullied at school. For Muslim students, the rate is at least 1 in 2 depending on the region.

Training sessions for Muslim students and their parents on prevention and responseIn recognition of this growing problem, since 9/11, ING has worked with the US Department of Education, school districts, educators and Muslim partners like the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) to address bullying prevention on two fronts:

  • Seminars for public school educators on working with Muslim students to ensure an inclusive environment at school.

But much more needs to be done. Earlier this year, ING launched a program specifically for middle and high school youth called INGYouth, which aims to empower Muslim students by increasing their confidence in their Islamic identity while providing them with tools for bullying prevention.

At ING, we believe that bullying is a preventable problem, especially when young people and their parents are well-informed and empowered. Today, with our affiliated partner, the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati (ICGC), and with the support of ISNA, we’re pleased to provide supplement to our INGYouth program, a new Bullying Prevention Guide for parents, educators, and community members. This Guide helps define bullying and describes bullying prevention tips for home and schools.
