Keep tabs on our mission to keep kids safe
One Leg at a TimeMarch 17, 2015
Our founder, Joe Bruzzese, had the opportunity to meet a few members of the One Leg at a Time organization at the recent, National Conference on Bullying Prevention in Orlando.
How do you put on your pants? … That’s definitely an odd question to be asked and its answer is not one you normally think about. The most common answer is “one leg at a time,” which happens to be the name of our organization. In 2010, a group of high school students decided bullying had to stop and the only way to do that was for students to stand up for each other. These motivated students, with the guidance of their teacher, Lori Povisil, came up with the idea of a student driven anti-bullying group called One Leg at a Time. The “One Leg at a Time” Initiative helps empower students to use their voices and ideas to change the culture and climate in their schools. Students create content, fund-raise for travel/presentations/scholarships, and donate their free time to making their schools safer for peers. This student-driven program develops our leaders for tomorrow by giving them a voice today! The meaning behind One Leg at a Time is that no matter your gender, age, race, nationality, size, religious beliefs, socioeconomic status or sexual preference we are all created equal and share two things in common: first, we are all human and second, we all put our pants on the same way – One Leg at a Time!
