Cyberbullying -- the persistent and intentional use of electronic communication to harass, threaten, intimidate or otherwise mistreat has become a growing problem in society, particularly among youth.
For educators, schools and families, the ADL provides:
- School and community interactive training workshops about cyberbullying dangers and strategies to respond, including the CyberALLY™ training program for middle and high school students.

For businesses, the ADL provides free lunch and learns for employees focused on the dangers of and responding to Cyberbullying.
In addition, the ADL advocates at the state and local level for comprehensive bullying prevention policies in schools and raising awareness through local action. The ADL has created a Model Cyberbullying Prevention Statute that provides state legislators and school boards with guidance in drafting more effective laws to deal with cyberbullying in a comprehensive, practical and effective manner.
