NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - About one out of every five students in schools in the United States reports being bullied, according to the National Bullying Prevention Center.
School is where bullying starts for most kids so that is where Jeremy Rubenstein is trying to end it. A decade ago, he created a program called Box Out Bullying, a 40-minute interactive classroom presentation that is part Broadway play, part game show to educate kids on bullying in all its forms.
Box Out Bullying is based in Jackson Heights, Queens, but has branches across the country. These have partnered with other anti-bullying groups, such as Hat Not Hate, to reach audiences of different ages.
Box Out Bullying team members travel in groups of two in a van you can easily spot with messages that are spot on.
