Remarkable teen Jaylen Arnold fights to end bullying in a brand new episode of The HALO Effect, premiering tonight at 8:30pm on Nickelodeon.
This episode features Arnold, a 14 year old boy from Lakeland, Florida, who decided to stand up to bullying and build a friendlier and more welcoming work through his organization Jaylen’s Challenge Foundation. Jaylen breaks out and fights bullying with words and experience rather than physically fighting back. This was founded after Jaylen was being bullied in school for his disability.
Arnold travels around the country creating awareness and preventing bullying through presentations and workshops. He also helps kids create Jaylen’s Challenge Ambassador Clubs in their schools to help spread his “Bullying No Way” message. The Jaylen’s Challenge Foundation has taught over 130,000 children how to recognize bullying and to appreciate the differences in each other.
Nickelodeon’s The HALO Effect will award a $10,000 grant to Arnold’s organization.
