With the advancement in technology, students have become more susceptible to cyberbullying. Through mediums related to social networking sites, cell phones, and other virtual platforms, more than ever students are faced with the new ways of bullying. The project was created in an attempt to determine if bullying was an issue that local middle school students faced. The project was situated in Los Arboles Middle School in Marina, California and the deliverables that came out of the project were the results of a sixth grade population survey, an awareness program, and a written reflection by all participants in the program. Upon completion, the project has shown how local sixth grade middle school students are affected and handle issues related to bullying.
