Starting the Conversation Program

Objectives

The conversation turns to leadership. Students will

  • Identify steps they can take when someone they know is affected by an unhealthy relationship and what they can do if they witness behavior or language related to sexual bullying, harassment, or assault (become “upstanders” instead of “bystanders”).
  • Develop an explicit moral framework as individuals and as a team (Team Honor Code).
  • Demonstrate leadership to influence a positive peer culture in the school.

Essential Questions

Consider the following:

  • How can we become leaders in preventing sexual violence, bullying, and harassment by modeling healthy behaviors and being "upstanders" instead of bystanders?
