Eagle Scout’s Film Fights Cyberbullying
Cyberbullying is the use of technology to harass, threaten, embarrass, or target another person. Statistics suggest that more than 40% of teens will experience cyberbullying but less than 1 in 10 report the abuse. United Methodist Eagle Scout Nick Hiratsuka produced a short film to help teens and parents identify cyberbullying and know what action can be taken.
Hiratsuka received the Good Samaritan Award from United Methodist Men for his Eagle Scout project.
View It's Not Just a Joke. The half hour film can be shared with youth and adult community groups.
Nick Hiratsuka is a member of the Boy Scout Troop at his church, St. Mark’s United Methodist in Tucson, Arizona.
