Bystander Intervention

Our bystander intervention presentation comes in 3 forms. The first is our Multi-Modal presentation that engages students through music, videos, and social media. Our second form is our Theatre presentation, which engages students to interact with Peer Educators to see what bystander intervention looks like in real life. Our third form is our “A Call to Men” presentation, which focuses on men as active bystanders and the role they can play in preventing sexual violence.
