Parents for P.R.I.D.E.: Neighbors United for Compassion’s mission is to create a bully free, drug free environment in our schools, youth sports, communities, and anywhere in our neighborhoods or electronically.
The PRIDE philosophy focuses on the core principles-Protect, Respect, Influence, Develop and Encourage. We Protect our children; Respect each other; Influence and inspire empathy, kindness, and compassion; Develop positive behavioral fundamentals; and Encourage teamwork.
We are working to create a bully free, drug free environment with parents, youth sports, schools, community members, community leaders, and community organizations. To activate a bully free kind and compassionate environment, Parents for PRIDE: Neighbors United in Compassion is committed to introducing initiatives which will educate parents, communities, and schools in bullying prevention and awareness. Bullying prevention and awareness initiatives will help to further create the awareness of alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, and violence; these initiatives will lead to a decline in bullying as well as drug abuse in our schools and communities.
The display of empathy, kindness, and compassion in our homes, schools, and communities will help to achieve a bully free, drug free environment and to promote classroom diversity as well as community diversity. It will also help with the issue of self-esteem, which can cause many young people to turn to bullying, drugs, and alcohol.
All of the above will assist our school age youth in becoming productive caring adults.
Thank you to the Mars Area Public Library Board Members for their volunteer work they provide to our organization. Visit the Mars Area Public Library website for tools that inform, inspire and create possibilities.
Mr. Mark Hart, Director, Security and Safety Programs, West Mifflin Area School District
Our goal in creating, operating and maintaining a Security and Safety program here at WMASD is to ensure that we identify all associated security and safety risks that are present in today’s schools . Our partnership with the Parent for Pride organization has allowed us to bring a “awareness” to the staff, students and community of the potential issues related to bullying and the effects that this can have on the student and community population. This initiative has allowed us to identify and implement all of our “Bullying Prevention” K-12 programs that we have in place under one “No Bully Zone” program.

The Educators Resource Guide offers non-threatening, non-humiliating solutions to a problem that causes more than 150,000 young people to miss school every day. WWE and The Creative Coalition have launched an anti-bullying campaign that is substantive enough for adults and cool enough for kids." - Solomon Alexander, St. Louis Sports Commission.
