Bully Back Off , which Steve provides to youth and adults in the Chilliwack community is both innovative and unique. The work being done by Steve to combat bullying in our community includes effective classroom prevention seminars which in my experience have been interactive and fun. Thus improving life situations and harvesting nourishing relationships in our community ,

Thanks again Steve. All of the sessions were to the point and informative. We will look at ways to instil and review the BEST skills with both students and our parent community. Angela Utley, , Elementary School Principal

I just want to thank Steve and tell him how much he meant to me. He's really changed a lot in my life.
I don't love school, but I'm not afraid to go anymore. I now have a best friend who cares about me, and my marks have gotten way better in school. And my self confidence has raised to the sky.

I recommend that the Bully Back Off program be implemented into Planning 10 classes as it meets important Ministry of Education prescribed learning outcomes and arms young people with the confidence to become self advocates

It was a great opportunity for the students to learn more about how to help their children assert themselves. Your interesting and demonstrative talk and willingness to answer questions made the discussion of a somewhat difficult subject fun and accessible for our students
