Teachers and parents welcome to attend free. 

Amto-bullying PosterThe series of events is aimed at engaging youth in a discussion about cyberbullying, social justice, and technology. Each event will see groups of high school students brainstorm the issues, explore different perspectives and design technology based solutions in the form of apps. The groups of students will work with tech experts and designers, educators and law enforcement to help create change and build solutions that will work to put an end to cyberbullying.

This full day event is free for students and will be occurring in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Halifax.

Each event is entirely FREE for students and is proudly presented by the Canadian Safe School Network and Lighthouse Labs. We are working together to help the youth who face adversity and struggle with bullying and cyberbullying issues everyday.

Goals:

Create awareness around bullying and cyberbullying.
Engage youth in a discussion on the most relevant issues surrounding bullying and social technology.
Develop a unique and innovative digital solution to help combat cyberbullying.

Who Should Attend:

We’re inviting high school students in 4 major cities across Canada to join us for the BullyStop Hackathon series. We’re looking for students who are passionate about making a difference and creating change. Youth who believe that cyber-bullying sucks and who want to do something about it.

Join us if you:
– Are in grade 9 – 12
– Are passionate about getting involved in social justice activities
– Are interested or curious about technology, app design, and coding.
– Want to help put an end to cyberbullying

(*note: you don’t have to be a coder to attend this event. Having an interest in coding and app design makes you a great candidate, but if you have ideas about bullying, safe spaces, inclusiveness, and youth justice this event is for you too!)
