ABOUT NVEEE
MISSION
To prevent bullying, violence, and suicide among youth, families and communities through direct
service, mentoring and prevention education.
VISION
NVEEE’s vision is a NATION whose collective VOICES speak to a world in which EQUALITY is a
reality, and EDUCATION fosters ENLIGHTENMENT. Our vision is a world where each child, family
and community achieve their highest expression of well-being and contribution to the world.
HISTORY
NVEEE is a community-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit
established in October 2009. We are a diverse team of
professional educators, business leaders, parents and students
who took our concerns about student safety and well-being
and put our passion into action–moving from bystanders to
community leaders.
NVEEE has reached nearly 10,000 teachers, students,
parents, and community leaders through our Mentoring
Program, Peace Ambassador Program, After School Program,
and our signature Not On My Watch School-wide Bullying
Prevention Programs. We were also honored in Washington D.C. by Congresswoman Frederica Wilson
with a Proclamation entered into the Library of Congress and the Congressional Records of the United
States for our work in providing children and families with support services, and being “agents of
change”.
Headquartered in Ft. Lauderdale, with offices in Miami, NVEEE directly impacts the South Florida
community, and now our work is expanding to communities in California, Georgia, New York, North
Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington, DC and Puerto Rico.

__________________________________________________________________________
NVEEE’S Signature Not On My Watch
School-wide Bullying Prevention Program
According to national surveys, 70% of middle and high school students have experienced bullying at
some point, with 20-40% having bullied or been part of bullying during the school year (American
Psychological Association, 2011). Schools and parents alike often feel overwhelmed by the current
bullying epidemic, wanting to make a difference and not knowing where to begin.
The purpose of this program is to reduce bullying incidents in elementary, middle and
high schools, and to initiate a systemic prevention network within the school
community. Workshops teach students social skills, models specific actions, and
demonstrates ways of being and behaving that can empower students to reduce peerharassment as well as self-harm. Not On My Watch serves as a catalyst to support a
peer-led intervention to alter school culture around bullying. Workshop surveys are
used to assess school and community specific needs, and to capture data unique to
each school’s social and ecological frameworks, a practice recommended in leading
bullying prevention research (Swearer, Espelage, Vaillancourt & Hymel, 2010).
Workshops are conducted using a variety of learning modalities (group discussion, videos, media
slides, role playing diads, and interactive exercises) and utilizes bullying prevention curricula and
materials from the National Education Association (Health Information Network, 2010). The
workshop also:
• Provides prevention and intervention strategies for bullying and harassment.
• Delineates the characteristics and actions steps necessary for students to intervene on behalf of
their peers in bullying and harassment situations.
• Explores the training and education that can empower students to move from inactive
bystanders to active agents of change.
• Highlights resources for creating and maintaining a school-wide initiative against bullying and
harassment.
• Utilizes Pre/Post evaluations to measure knowledge gains, as well to collect self-report data of
student perceptions of bullying in their environment. Survey data and other evaluation methods
is used to assess particular social and ecological factors unique to each school community.
19
__________________________________________________________________________
PROGRAM EVALUATION
NVEEE’s Not On My Watch workshops have been evaluated by graduate students from the University
of Miami School of Education’s Community & Social Change program.
Two pilot workshops for middle schools students [N=64] at a Miami-Dade County Public K-8 center
received a pre, mid, and post-evaluations designed to measure specific outcomes as defined by the
learning objectives and the program evaluation plan. Students at the K-8 Center who were selected by
teachers as, “the problem students with bullying behaviors.” This contextual factor adds significance
to the findings.
Findings:
• 88% of students rated the workshops “worthwhile” or “extremely worthwhile”, at post.
• 87% marked “yes” to the question after the NOMW workshops, “If you or a close friend were
to experience bullying, do you feel like you know the action steps you can take to empower
yourself or your friend?”
• 75% of students see themselves willing to work together with one another to intervene in
bullying, at post.
• Before the workshops, students on average were only able to identify two forms of bullying.
At post-evaluation, students on average were able to correctly name nearly four forms of
bullying.
• Before the workshops, for the questions, “How often I help others who are bullied”, plus “How
often I observe others help those who are bullied” the average response rate was 45%. At post,
the combined response rate was 73% for both these questions.
Limitations:
Due to the nature of pre/post self-report surveys, these results are not a true experimental design and
cannot imply causality. This is only program evaluation data. Also, demand characteristics and social
desirability concerns exist with this type of design.
Kids who are obese, gay, or
have disabilities are up to 63%
more likely to be bullied than
other children.

GET INVOLVED
Yes, we have come a long way in a short period of time! But we still need your help to support
the increasing number of communities, schools, and youth we serve. Getting involved is quick,
easy and fun. Please consider helping us in one of the following ways:
GET IN ACTION!
Volunteering is a wonderful way for you to become a part of NVEEE and to make a difference in the
lives of young people. There are numerous ways for you to help us on our mission such as becoming a
Peace Ambassador, Mentor, or serving on our Parent Advisory Board, Youth Advisory Board, a
Committee, and Board of Directors. Volunteers are needed at events, fundraisers and in schools. Please
visit our website at www.nveee.org to learn more, or email us at [email protected]
RAISE AWARENESS
Every voice can make a difference. Even if you don’t think you have the time to volunteer, social
media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and good old-fashioned word of mouth to friends,
coworkers, or family, spreading awareness of NVEEE helps us in pursuit of our mission and goals.
Please visit our website at www.nveee.org to learn more.
MAKE A DONATION

hope you will consider us in your giving plan for 2012. With your donation we will continue to strive

ABC’s SECRET MILLIONAIRE PREMIER
Sunday, August 5, 2012, 8.P.M EST
Secret Millionaire, which airs on ABC, features wealthy benefactors each week that go undercover in
the most deprived neighborhoods of the United States. For one week, the millionaires mingle within
the community and live on a very low-cost budget; this is the very first time doing so for many of
them. At the end of the show, the millionaires reveal their identities and proceed to donate funds to
worthy charities.
On Sunday August 5, 2012, NVEEE will be featured on this hit TV series. As South Florida’s only
nonprofit organization who mission is to prevent bullying, suicide and school violence, NVEEE was
selected by a donor who also survived bullying, while growing up as a teen in Miami.
Join NVEEE and our Secret Millionaire on Saturday, September 15 at High Bar on top of the glorious
Dream Hotel in the heart of Miami Beach, as we celebrate our work in bullying prevention, and pay
homage to our youth who have paved the way for other students to stand proud and live our motto Bullying, Not On My Watch! To watch a clip of the show visit our YouTube Channel at: http://
