Tune into NBC tonight at 7:30PM to see a 30-minute special on South Florida Schools featuring an interview with Jacob Carpenter, a teen mentor with NVEEE (National Voices for Equality, Education and Enlightenment). Jacob was bullied in South Florida schools culminating in his eventual withdrawal from classes and home schooling.  Now he meets with Will Shepard in an effort to discuss the bullying problems that many students face in public and private schools.

“Being in the presence of teens who have faced such adversity in their young lives, but who still open their hearts to strangers in the name of peace,” says  Jowhara Sanders, the founder and President of NVEEE, “is not only uplifting but offers a dose of inspiration to anyone in their presence.”
