What’s it like to be bullied – and how do we stop it

Poster designed by Jontue Hollingsworth with content by Youth Vote.

This program is part of Alaska Public Media’s Solutions Desk. This month were talking about youth supporting youth. Want to hear more youth voices talking about their experiences with bullying and fitting in? Check out these Story Works Alaska podcasts.
