How to Be An Upstander

Almost 50% of teens see at least one bullying or taunting incident in school every day. Almost 30% see these types of episodes at least once a week.

What Can Students Do When They Know Someone is Being Bullied?

· Get help from an adult when you see or hear someone being bullied

· Avoid gossip; refuse to spread rumors

· Refuse to join in when someone is being bullied

· Create a distraction to draw the bully/bullies away

· Include someone who is being left out from an activity

· Speak up when someone is being bullied

Most bystanders KNOW the bullying is wrong, but only 35% actually do something to help. To stop this epidemic from spreading, everyone must get involved. If you see or hear bullying happening, do something!
