The Teen Nation Tour is like no other anti-bullying effort. Young, talented recording artists travel the nation performing, educating, and empowering peers through music and personal stories. On weekends, the Teen Nation Tour holds public concerts without the anti-bullying message at non-school venues such as malls, theaters, and more.
The school program is 90 minutes and students learn about the types of bullying (http://www.teennationtour.com/)

Statistics about bullying and teen suicide are alarming.Bullying affects nearly one in three schoolchildren in grades six through 10 and one of every 10 students who drop out of school do so because of repeated bullying. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year, according to the CDC. For every suicide among young people, there are at least 100 suicide attempts. More than 14 percent of high school students have considered suicide, and almost seven percent have attempted it.
The Teen Nation Tour is a national, grassroots effort traveling to schools across the country. In three months, the tour has visited five cities holding 70 school and public performances reaching an estimated audience of more than 50,000 people. This year, the tour is scheduled to perform more than 330 school and public venues in about 40 cities, 22 states, reaching an estimated half-million people.

About Teen Nation Tour
The Teen Nation Tour is a peer-to-peer anti-bullying campaign and concert tour featuring young recording artists who perform and lecture at schools and other venues across America. Lee Wilson founded Teen Nation Tour after his son was bullied and injured on a school bus. In late 2013, the Teen Nation Tour was bolstered by a strategic partnership with Alternative Revenue Development (http://www.altrevenues.net/)
