OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM THE METS ORGANIZATION ON ‘IT GETS BETTER’.

“The Mets place a high priority on supporting our children in our community. For 18 years, the Mets have been a proud sponsor of the Student Athlete Leadership Conference Series, a mentoring program that has trained thousands of high school athletes to promote positive activities to more than half a million elementary school students across Long Island. As part of the program, the mentors deliver an antibullying and civility message with particular attention paid to language and behavior that is derogatory and offensive based on racial, sexual and ethnic biases.

“The Mets have been exploring a number of ways to expand our reach and how best to deliver an antibullying message to a broader audience. We are actively working with organizations to determine the appropriate message. Bullying is a serious issue that affects all youth and we are pleased that a number of our players are ready to help.”
