About The Quinton Aaron Foundation

The Quinton Aaron Foundation supports anti-bullying efforts to reduce serious and life-threatening effects bullying has on kids and teens at school and in the community. The foundation was actually created in 1990 when Quinton first experienced being bullied. Thinking of ways to end the tremendous amount of bullying he would endure, thoughts of finding ways to end it would inspire many of the teachings he now shares with teacher, administrators, parents and our children today! Teaching students these core sets of pro-social skills enables them to learn to relate positively to others, resolve conflict peacefully, consider the effect their actions have on others and contribute to making school, home and community a better place to live and learn.
