K2K = Kid to Kid;
training where students, from grades 7 through college, become the trainers for their younger peers.
College students train high school students.
High school students train middle/junior high students.
Middle/junior high students train elementary students.
What’s the content?
The curriculum provided through a “train the trainer” model, provides their younger peers with skills designed to
- interrupt, intervene, and prevent bullying
- increase cyber safety, and
- improve overall school culture.
The train the trainer is 31 hours of face to face training for youth and supporting adults. During this training, you learn, not only the content of the curriculum you will teach, but how to be effective trainers and how to train the next generation of trainers.
What are the benefits for those who become trainers?
- LEARN and USE TRAINING & PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS
- MASTERY OF ANTI-BULLYING, CYBER SAFETY, and POSITIVE SCHOOL CULTURE SKILLS.
- POSITIVELY INFLUENCE SCHOOL CULTURE and PEERS
- BECOME POSITIVE ROLE MODELS
- INCREASE LEADERSHIP SKILLS and EXPERIENCE
- COMMUNITY SERVICE
It’s a great step toward exploring and expanding any interest youth have in becoming speakers, teachers, trainers, politicians, and any other leadership role. Not only do you get to be part of the change needed, it looks great on your resume.
What’s the cost?
Currently, K2K operates at no cost to the students involved.

Tax deductible donations for consumables (printing, training materials, etc.) is sought from community organizations and individuals interested in supporting the elimination of bullying.
