TOM THELEN – FOUNDER OF NO BULLYING SCHOOLS
Bullying Prevention Speaker Tom Thelen
Tom Thelen is one of America’s top anti-bullying speakers and the Founder of No Bullying Schools. He has spoken at over 700 schools and conferences inspiring groups of all ages to take responsibility for their choices and to make a positive impact on their local culture. He is best known for creating a Bullying Reporting Software for schools and for his video curriculum on bullying. Tom has been featured on NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, The National Association of Student Councils, The National Honor Society, as well as Student Conferences for 4-H, FFA, SADD, FBLA, and YMCA.
As a youth motivational speaker, Tom’s message takes students on a journey through his own life story – a normal “face in the crowd” kid who never struggled with drugs or alcohol, but instead lived with a victim mindset. Thankfully one teacher stepped in and helped him break free from the bullying cycle. Today, Tom travels America showing students and educators how to stand up to bullying and how to “BE THE CHANGE” on their campus.

A Message From Tom
Hi, I’m Tom Thelen, and I love helping students! As a teen, my High School English Teacher believed in me when no one else did, and through her influence I learned the importance of character, leadership, and bullying-prevention. Now I get to take that same message of hope to students, parents, and educators around the world.
My goal in every speech is to: 1) Connect with the audience through an authentic message. 2) Teach universal values that are relevant to everyone. And 3) Inspire them to take the next positive step in their lives. And that’s exactly what I do. When students take ownership of their lives, their choices, and their character, it creates a win-win for the students and for the school.
I look forward to partnering with you to bring the message of bullying prevention and leadership to your students. Together we can reduce bullying and create a culture of character.
