​I.    Defining the Problem
II.   Who is Affected by Bullying?
III.  Where Bullying Risks Manifest
The Art of Prevention Corporation (APC) was formed for public good to address national problems that affect health, safety and wellbeing. APC is a nonprofit resource offering prevention strategies which raise awareness, mitigate risks, minimize suffering and contain costs. 

Our first initiative, PeerPaL™, is a campus violence prevention system designed to create Certified Violence Free Zones™ (CVFZs™). Our program supports the universal, incident management plan (IMP) model, developed by FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security to implement prevention, intervention, response and recovery strategies.  

PeerPaL™ tailors incident management plans (IMPs) to create site specific Performance Improvement Plans (PIPs) for individual campuses.  We use a web-based, collaborative portal to bring together all stakeholders that have made a commitment to becoming violence free.
