Youth Stars has a variety of anti-bullying initiatives in place, designed to raise awareness and educate youth on how to deal with bullying and reach out for help. One of our most notable programs is the Anti-Bullying Tour, which is now in its 6th year. Its mandate is to appeal to both the victims and the bullies and to promote the Kids Help Phone line.
Youth Stars has also organized Anti-Bullying Online Concerts and are seeking to implement Anti-Bullying clubs. For more information, see below.

YOUTH STARS ANTI-BULLYING TOUR & ANTI-BULLYING CLUB KICKS OFF AT PARKDALE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN VILLE SAINT-LAURENT! (READ ARTICLE BELOW)
There was much enthusiasm as an anti-bullying tour started Friday at Parkdale Elementary School in St-Laurent.
The Youth Stars production, led by Malik Shaheed, better known as DJ Malik, taught children in Grades 1 through 6 about the importance of recognizing the signs of bullying, and how to reach out, or even help fellow classmates and friends.
“Understand the signs of bullying. Don’t be a bully. Be a friend. As a human being, you have to help people. We all need help. Speak up when you see bullying,” said Malik.
The anti-bullying program is in its fifth year, which tours schools across Montreal and Quebec. Malik hopes to be able to expand the tour on a nationwide level.
“We are creating a buzz in Quebec, and once the buzz spreads out, we will also be extending our hands out to schools in Ontario, and other provinces,” he said.
The Youth Stars Tour is dedicated to Devan Bracci-Selvey this year, who was killed earlier this year as a victim of bullying.
