Don’t Be A Monster is a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works alongside Haunted Attractions in the United States. We are the largest nonprofit organization in the Haunted Attraction community. We offer free, unique, and entertaining bullying prevention assemblies for students in 4th-10th grade.
October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. Our assemblies are delivered in the "Halloween Season" (late September through early November).
Each assembly is presented by our DBAM team from a partnering haunted attraction local to your area. With them is our mascot Frank, who teaches kids to celebrate our differences. Meet our team who makes the magic happen.
Don’t Be A Monster’s program is highly effective: 98.14% of schools surveyed post-presentation find our material beneficial and memorable for their students. But don't just take our word for it! Check out the feedback from school teachers, administrators, and counselors who reviewed our program here.
Outside of our presentation season, Don't Be A Monster spends time researching bullying prevention, hosting local events, and attending Halloween trade shows to fundraise for our program. Learn more about our upcoming events here.
We believe in a positive, proactive approach to bullying behavior.
Don't Be A Monster's mission is to educate and empower youth to stand up for themselves and their peers by building a community where everyone is included, no matter their differences.
A world where kindness is empowering and uniqueness is celebrated.
