About:

Bystander: A Portrait in Apathy is the only bully prevention assembly program that draws attention to the most influential group in the bullying cycle, bystanders, by using YOUR students to prepare and present a powerful message about what it really means to be a bully victim. 


Bystander works by taking a group of YOUR students and rehearsing with them two hours a day Monday through Thursday. During that time, students discuss bullying and its effects, rehearse and memorize the scripted performance and learn how to effectively facilitate small group debriefing sessions. On Friday of the selected week, YOUR students will amaze their school community with their powerful 25 minute performance. The performance, a script highlighting the feelings associated with being a victim of bullying as well as the common excuses bystanders give for not getting involved, bookended by an emotionally charged powerpoint presentation will leave audience members silent, thoughtful and motivated to change.
Following the performance, audience members will return to classrooms where a performer will meet with them to discuss what they have seen and heard during the performance. They will inform their group of how to better intervene as a bystander and leave them with a Bystander Pledge that confirms their commitment to making a more positive impact in their school community.


Bystander is the performance that will open the eyes of your students and allow your students to have a stake in creating a school climate where positivity is the way of life.
