Friends Colorado is a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of bullying. We educate and support schools and youth sports clubs throughout Colorado with the vision to see children and adolescents grow up in a safe, secure, and comfortable environment. Bullying, harassment, and discrimination are global problems that require global solutions. There is a need and demand for qualitative, practical methods to prevent this pervasive problem. Our time-tested program increases awareness about bullying and provides valuable tools to help schools and sports clubs boost knowledge and engagement around this critical issue. Thanks to generous private donations which fully fund Friends Colorado, our program is affordable and accessible for schools and youth sports clubs.
Friends has its roots in Sweden, where the organization was founded in 1997, and is now the largest anti-bullying organization in the country. In 2015, the organization was established in Colorado.
