• Empowering bystanders

    We empower bystanders to take action when we:

    • help them see that their silence makes the bully more powerful and contributes to the harm done to the target
    • show them what to do by consistent adult interventions to stop bullying
    • protect them from retaliation
    • help them see when telling the bully to stop is safe and teaching them effective ways to do this
    • encourage them to tell adults about the bullying they see
    • and teach them to reach out in friendship to targets of bullying and isolated peers
