Information on how to request a bystander presentation for your group, class, or organization

Thank you for your interest in booking a Bystander presentation and for recognizing the importance of spreading this message! There are two options to request and below you will find some information about each, but please do not hesitate to contact us with further questions at bystand@bc.edu.  We look forward to working with you!

 

 

Stand Up BC: Flagship Bystander Presentation

    The flagship Stand Up BC Bystander presentation is an hour and fifteen minute long interactive presentation facilitated by two undergraduate student trainers.  Through the use of BC specific statistics and scenarios, engaging video clips, and group discussion and activities, we teach students what sexual assault is, how to prevent it, and how to help make our campus safer and more welcoming for those who have already experienced assault.  See our “Learn” page to learn more about the content covered during our presentation.

If you want to request this option for your group:
  • Keep in mind that most students will have gone through this presentation already in their residence halls, but review is always a good thing! 
  • We recommend a group size of 15-20 students, but can accomodate larger groups if need be. 
  • Since we use A/V elements in our presentation, a space with a projector or a television is ideal (such as a classroom or a meeting room). We are able to bring along our own computers, adapters, speakers and portable projectors if necessary.
 
 
 

Step In BC: Bystander Intervention Discussion Group

    This presentation option is meant for groups that have already gone through the flagship presentation, either with their first year residence hall or with another group. This unique, interactive discussion group option is facilitated by two Bystander trainers and allows the group to reflect on what they learned in their Bystander presentation as well as deep-dive into questions about rape culture and how it manifests in society as well as here at Boston College. This option is highly customizable and can be catered to your specific group and their interests. 

If you want to request this option for your group: 
  • Since this is a discussion group, a group size of 10-15 students is ideal. However, if you have a large group, we can split into smaller sections to have multiple discussions going on simultaneously. 
  • The discussion would ideally take an hour, but can be catered to your group's needs. 
  • There is no A/V element to this option. 
 
 

About our trainers:

    Research has shown that our message is more effective when students receive it from their peers, which is why we train undergraduate students to present.  Our trainers are sophomore, juniors and senior women and men who go through extensive training and practice prior to presenting.  They are an energetic, passionate, and talented group who look forward to working with you!
