The Olweus Program (pronounced Ol-VEY-us; the E sounds like a long A) is a comprehensive, school-wide program designed and evaluated for use in elementary, middle, or junior high schools.  The program’s goals are to reduce and prevent bullying problems among school children and to improve peer relations at school. The program has been found to reduce bullying among children, improve the social climate of classrooms, and reduce related antisocial behaviors, such as vandalism and truancy.  The Olweus Program has been implemented in more than a dozen countries around the world, and in thousands of schools in the United States. 

 If you are a parent, educator, school administrator, or other concerned adult who may be interested in implementing the Olweus program, please click here to go a more comprehensive program website, maintained by the Hazelden Foundation at www.Olweus.org.
