Jobs/Roles in the ECE Community: Internationally

International Bullying Prevention Association 
"The mission of the International Bullying Prevention Association is to support and enhance quality research based bullying prevention principles and best practices in order to achieve a safe school climate, healthy work environment, good citizenship and civic responsibility." (2013)
The website did not have any links, resources, or information regarding job opportunities but if I worked for the Association I would want to be a sponsor and help in anyway that I could. I would also attend as many Webinars as often as I could.
The skills and experience that I would need to competently fulfill each of these roles is to be reliable, good with people, good communication skills, like to travel, and must be willing to learn.

Home of the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program.
The website for this program has a lot of useful and helpful information on it for children and parents. It has many links such as:  Recognizing Bullying, Warning signs of bullying, Impact of Bullying, and it offers bullying prevention resources. 

The website/program does not offer job opportunities on the website but it would be neat to maybe work in the funding department or even the professional education department helping children and possibly offering them therapy (For children who have been bullied.)

The skills and experience that I would need to competently fulfill each of these roles is to: Be open minded, have effective communication skills, be good with money, be honest, and love helping others. I must also be educated.

I love this program because it really promotes people helping people and people all around getting involved. It offers a support plan, talks about the widespread problem.  There are ways to help but like the other websites above, it does not list job opportunities available. I'd like to help with the campaign part of this program, possibly go to schools and be a motivational speaker.

The skills and experience I would need to competently fulfull each of those roles is be educated on bullying, the affects it has on children and families, be willing to travel, communicate well, and want to make a difference.

  1. It is wonderful to see people committed to bullying prevention in order to provide a safe environment for children. Even if there are no jobs available at the moment, perhaps the awareness about the issue is a start to a more proactive approach in the near future.


  2. Stacy,

    I love how you found international organizations who work with bullying. This allows you to make further connections to your capstone project. I am sorry you were not able to find any jobs posted. What other countries have you found that deal with bullying?

  3. Stacy,
    Thanks for sharing your international organizations of interest. Bullying has become an important issue in my state during the last year. There may be jobs available on a state level for this organization.

  4. I loved your post, and it is so applicable to your capstone project. I am glad these impressive organizations are there, and you would be an asset to any of them.
