Stand By Me: Empowering Bystanders to End Bullying in Schools is a unique anti-bullying program that teaches student bystanders what to do when they see bullying happen. Designed and piloted in public schools, it provides simple training, ease of use, data for decision-making, and demonstrated effectiveness. Once trained, faculty sponsors provide ongoing training on participating campuses, so the program is easy to maintain despite personnel changes.
Comments from evaluators:
“This anti-bullying program is presented in a step-by-step model to create a community (that includes parents, teachers and students) to empower the students to speak up and support the victims of bullying behavior.”
“Parents may want to bring this book to their student’s schools and help get this program started there.”
“many students with special needs are victims of negative, hurtful behaviors, and I think this program is a positive way to bring the school communities together to stop and avoid such incidents.”
