Team (Believe It Or Not I Care) as a school club. B.I.O.N.I.C. Teams at 2 schools in 14 years saw over 1,000 B.I.O.N.I.C. students reach out to over 140,000 hurting peers, families, and school staff, and prevented bullying and youth suicides! We also reach out to schools that experience shootings or other tragedies. Schools in all 50 states and over 37 countries have inquired about a B.I.O.N.I.C. Team for their schools! Even businesses are inquiring because they have employees who are new, sick, or lose loved ones too! Want to hear the stories of suicides prevented, bullying stopped, kids encouraged, and school climates changed to empower kids to care about each other?
