DeWitt County DOVE wants to equip local students in the fight against school and cyber bullying.
The non-profit group aimed at curbing violence and abuse in the community, wants to target every school age group from kindergarten through high school as well as educating parents. Megan Neaville, with DeWitt County Dove, says each grade will be engaged in a specific, age-appropriate discussion.
The emergence of social media in the last decade has proven to be a challenge for parents regarding their children's online activities and Neaville says DOVE is working to partner with parents in keeping current with their kids online along with combating cyber bullying.
Neaville feels bullying can be an issue in every community to a certain degree and its crucial to take action in these situations.
Anyone with concerns or wanting to participate in the program can contact DOVE at 935-6619.
