TCF Helps Teens Fight Cyberbullying Through Film

Since we began our partnership with AT&T a few months ago, we have been able to expand our reach and work to end bullying. We collaborated on an extensive poll of New York-area teens and parents to uncover attitudes and behaviors related to cyberbullying. The results were substantial. Nearly half of all teens say they have been bullied online. 8 in 10 know someone who has been the victim of cyberbullying.Read the full results of our poll here!

This weekend we join AT&T and the All American High School Film Festival in kicking off an exciting opportunity for 100 New York-area student filmmakers, as they compete at the national Teen Film Festival. The teens will create films focused on the personal effects of cyberbullying. We are honored to be a partner for this incredible event. The films produced and the relationships built this weekend will create more compassion and respect at high schools across the New York area.
