Power of the Bystander

The bystander is one of the most critical, if not the most critical person in a conflict. Teaching youth how to successfully and confidently intervene when appropriate is very important. If intervening is not a good idea, they need to know how to get help. Role playing, watching videos, and brainstorming together what might work are suggestions. Online resources about being an “Upstander” are available for exploration. (See also: Upstander)
