Indianapolis to Host Music-Fueled National Anti-Bullying Tour


 
PRLog - Apr. 7, 2014 - INDIANAPOLIS -- The Teen Nation Tour (http://www.teennationtour.com/) – a year-long anti-bullying campaign and concert tour featuringteen recording artists – will perform for more than 6,000 students and Administrators at 10 Indianapolis area schools starting Mon., April 7 through Friday, April 11.

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/), prevention, where to turn when it occurs, and more. The campaign is effective because the artists approach this important topic by relating to youth on their own level, sharing personal experiences and offering tips on how together they can stand and defend against bullying.

Headlining the Indianapolis Teen Nation Tour is former ‘X Factor’ contestant J Ryan (http://www.jryanofficial.com/), 14, of San Antonio, Texas; and Tristan Blaine (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8oqQWqsLr0), 14, of Frisco, Texas. Additional guest performers include Faith Marie Shirley (https://twitter.com/realfaithmarie), 15 of San Antonio, Texas; Kristina Lachaga (http://www.kristinalachaga.com/) of New York; and Collin Kozola (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Collin-Kozola/194876177261238), 17, of Naperville, Illinois. Indiana’s own South Six 5 (http://southsix5.com/) will also make a special appearance. South Six 5’s Jacob Bates (http://www.reverbnation.com/southsix5), and Andrew Butcher (https://www.facebook.com/southsix5) are veterans of the Teen Nation Tour and recently auditioned for Americas Got Talent. Fans will need to tune in to the next season for their results.

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. This year, the tour is scheduled to perform at more than 330 school and public venues in about 40 cities, 22 states, reaching an estimated half-million people.
