  1. My name is Jim Jordan; I’m the president of ReportBullying.com. I travel all across North America speaking to students on the role of the bystanders. The reason for my email is to ask if you would like to add my website to your bullying links page and I will do the same on my end.

    Report Bullying is a school program that aids in reducing bullying in schools. Our team has keynote presentations for students, teacher and parents as well as many anti bullying exercises and tools to aid schools in educating bystanders in their role.
