The Fredette Family Foundation designed the Jimmerosity Positive Peer Pressure Program (P4) to help kids understand the tremendous importance of developing strong moral character. P4 also teaches them to carefully consider the impact their current decisions will have on their own future. We also impress upon kids in a powerful way how their current decisions will also affect the future of many of their classsmates. Young people that understand and internalize the principles of kindness, respect, tolerance, empathy, and compassion will never even think of bullying anyone.
Bullying has reached epidemic proportions in our country and especially in our school districts. Sadly, bullying has caused an alarming number of students to attempt and even commit suicide. Be certain this applies to both the Provo city School District and the Glens Falls School District where we are presently spend our time and resources. Bullying puts our children and grandchildren at risk. There is no family that is immune to its influence. Bullying is a problem that can only be solved with a united effort. Jimmerosity has developed programs that can help our children and stop the pain, suffering, and sometimes even death of our most important and precious gift – our children. We need your help!!
The Fredette Family Foundation through it’s Jimmerosity brand has designed several very specific programs and initiatives to attack and defeat the totally unacceptable trend of bullying. For example, we are one of the key founders and supporters of the Provo City School District Kindness Initiative which has done a great job of bringing awareness to the situation our kids face in schools and on social media, teaching our students to stand up and be a positive influence to help eliminate any form of bullying.
In Glens Falls, New York where Jimmer grew up there are presently 5 Jimmerosity Schools where our Chosen and P4 programs are in place. (For more information on these programs please see our Mission page). Students who have learned and internalized principles taught in these programs would never think of bullying anyone; furthermore, they have the knowledge and strength to stand up and speak out against bullying.
Your help is vital if we are going to succeed in eradicating this terrible enemy to our children. We need people willing to provide time, talent, money and resources. Thanks so much for your consideration.
