Who We Are
Don’t Be A Monster is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works with haunted houses throughout the U.S. We offer unique and entertaining anti-bullying assemblies in schools for students in 4th-10th grade. Our mission is simple: we work to educate and empower youth to be leaders in their school around diversity, inclusiveness, and show them how to stand up for their friends and peers. We focus on the choices a student can make when it comes to bullying. We discuss how these choices will impact their lives as well as the lives of those around them. What makes Don’t Be A Monster special is the way we deliver this message.
Our bullying prevention assembly is delivered in the months of late September through November, during National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month and the Halloween season. We have a unique mascot named Frank, entertaining presenters, and each student receives a wristband. With the exception of San Antonio and Austin, our program is free. In those cities our program is $200/per school. Our program is highly effective: 98.21% of schools surveyed post-presentation find our material beneficial for their students.
During our bullying prevention assemblies, students will be challenged to evaluate their understanding of community. We believe in a proactive approach. By reinforcing concepts like diversity, understanding, and being a leader, we feel that bullying will occur less in schools. Also, students will leave the presentation equipped to have an educated and empathetic discussions with their peers.
Currently, our anti-bullying school presentations are held in the cities of Anderson, Atlanta, Austin, Caldwell, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Kansas City, Kingston, Lake Charles, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, Seattle, St. Louis, and Waukesha.
