Community Matters: An Anti-Bullying Organization

World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation is happy to announce its partnership with the organization, Community Matters. Community Matters and WWMPC are working together in celebration of the film Time For a Champion. This film will be competing in numerous film festivals around the world and touches the growing issue of bullying. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Community Matters, as well as many organizations throughout the US and abroad.

In the past decade, our country has invested more than $10 billion in school safety. This money has been spent on an ‘Outside-In Approach’ which focuses on the authority of adults for safety. This approach uses measures such as metal detectors, security personnel, and very strict rules. Even with these measures, many kids still get bullied today. In the beginning, Community Matters was focused on youth development and bullying prevention but is now a consulting and training organization. There are more than one thousand schools, agencies, and organizations across thirty states that Community Matters has worked with.

The mission of Community Matters is to get students and adults to become more active in creating schools that are inclusive and safe. Instead of using the “Outside-Inside” approach, they focus on the “Inside-Out Approach,” which focuses on the interpersonal dynamics of students. Community Matters focuses on four core elements: building relationships, being student-centered, utilizing restorative practices, and changing behavior through social norms.
