Twelve-Year-Old Takes a Stand against Bullying
The problem of bullying in schools has escalated in recent years as victims increasingly take drastic steps... either in fighting back or giving in.
But while most students were out of school on this labor day, one 12-year-old young man from central Florida was hard at work -- taking a stand against bullying in a big way.
Jaylen Arnold is re-launching his campaign against bullying.
"A lot of people have told me they don't get bullied as much anymore and I'm their inspiration and that, that's what puts a smile on my face every time."
Jaylen started his "Jaylen's Challenge" program in 2009.
Now he's teaming up with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Lakeland Police Department--and other schools-- to reach seven thousand kids with the help of a 50 thousand dollar grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Lakeland.
