Our main office is located in Des Moines, but our team is able to come directly to you wherever you are. Our services are tailored to YOUR experience and what you want help with. We also provide support and information to parents and teachers of students who have been bullied.
Every student’s experience is going to be different, so the services we provide change to suit that. Here’s a list of some of, but not all, the direct services we provide:
If you’ve been bullied or discriminated against, here are some steps you can follow to make sure you can make a clear and complete report to your school, if you choose to do so.
An advocate is someone who has the ability to work with students who have been bullied, and can help them navigate what their rights are and how they can make the bullying stop.
