Mentoring USA’s partner, WWE, won immeasurable points in the “Eagle Academy Ring” yesterday.  Underscoring their Anti-Bullying program, Be a STAR, WWE hosted a Be a STAR Rally at the Eagle Academy of Newark, a school that empowers young men to become academic achievers, engaged citizens, and responsible men by providing quality education, resources and proven effective community-based initiatives to address the shortfalls in public education to effectively educate them.

Approximately 300 students in grades 4 through to 12 were in attendance from the following schools: the Eagle Academy for Young Men-Newark, the Girls Academy of Newark, BRICK Avon Academy, Chancellor Avenue School and Weequahic High School.

Key bullying stats:

Every seven minutes a child is bullied.  One in every four youth are involved in bullying – as bullies, as victims, or as both.  Be a STAR encourages young people to use their voice and power to ensure the bullying epidemic is eradicated.
