STOMP Out Bullying, The NY Jets, MCU, and the NYC Department of Education Visits Queen Metropolitan High School
February 13, 2018
In a continued effort to empower youth throughout the New York area, Municipal Credit Union (MCU) partnered with the New York Jets to present a donation of $200,000 to the New York City Department of Education (DOE). The donation, which was presented at a STOMP Out Bullying school recognition event held at Queens Metropolitan High School during Respect for All Week on February 13th, will go towards the Building Respect: Respect for All Conversation Skills online training simulations. The online training will enable New York City educators and school communities to identify and address best practices in creating bias- and bully-free environments.
Ross Ellis, STOMP Out Bullying founder and CEO talked about being an UPSTANDER and congratulated the school and the the 16 UPSTANDERS who were recognized during Respect For All Week.
other speakers included Neil Glat, President of the NY JETS; Corey Fernandes, Vice President of Business Development/Member Relations, Jesse Linder, Sr. Director NY JETS Community Relations, Deputy Chancellor Elizabeth Rose; New York City DOE and former NY Jets player Tony Richardson.
STOMP Out Bullying is proud to partner with the NY Jets and MCU, as well as being a resource to the New York City Department of Education.
