Welcome to The DON'T WAIT Project partner program DON'T WAIT to UnMake a Bully. Over the past seven years, Mike Feurstein has worked with thousands of students throughout the country, producing hundreds of anti-bullying and character-developing PSAs based on the experiences of the students who participate. Students learn and implement every aspect of the filmmaking process, including directing, acting, lighting, sound, makeup and more.
In its seventh year, the DON'T WAIT to UnMake a Bully program is impacting students, teachers, administrators and communities throughout the country. From New York to Washington state, we're helping in the stand against bullying through positive media.
MIKE FEURSTEIN (AKA Mr. Mike) is the creator of UnMake a Bully and a partner in the DON'T WAIT to UnMake a Bully program. Feurstein brings media into classrooms for project-based enrichment and runs summer video camps for middle schoolers. His students' work has been screened throughout the world, including the National Film Festival for Talented Youth. Feurstein's educational series "How to UnMake a Bully" earned Telly and Sage College Champion of Character Awards and endorsements from the Kids' Coalition for Quality Children's Media, The Anti-Defamation League, CBS-6 and many more. The How to UnMake a Bully program is being used by international organizations as one of the "best tools available" for anti-bullying instruction. An award-winning filmmaker, Feurstein is dedicated to giving students a voice in the stand against bullying through film and anti-bullying education.
