TAKE THE PLEDGE : I GOT YOUR BACK
I will always stand up
and speak out:
Never be a bystander.
I will make peace a priority.
I will think first, and fully.
I will recognize your value
– and my own.
I will understand that silence
I will refuse to participate in hatred, violence and bullying.
I will get involved, because I believe in change, progress, and love.
Let’s re-take Mandrake:
Nothing without Faith and Work

Bystanders Have Watched or Heard of Bullying Happening
Being a bystander can take many forms. Bystanders have a very powerful role to play as they can either respond or contribute to the bullying. Bystanders may think they are completely neutral, but in actuality that is rarely the case.
• can instigate the bullying by encouraging the bully to begin
• can encourage the bully by laughing, cheering, or making comments that further encourage the bully
• can join in the bullying once it's begun
• can stand by and do nothing other than watch the bullying, they only contribute to the problem because they give the bully acceptance to behave badly and the audience he or she craves
• play an important role in preventing or stopping a bully
• they directly intervene, by discouraging the bully, defending the victim, or redirecting the situation away from the bullying
• can get help by rallying their peers to stand up with them against the bullying
• report the bullying to adults
Have you ever found yourself in the role of the Bystander and said or asked yourself the following?
• “It’s none of my business.”
• "I'm not going to get involved because I could get picked on next."
• "There's noting I can do anyways."
• "I don't like the person that's being bullied anyways. They kinda deserve what they're getting."
• "I don't want to become the centre of attention in all this."
• "Snitches get stitches!"
• "If I tell someone like an adult, it'll just make it worse."
• "I don't know how to help."
Bystanders who don’t stand up or report the bullying often suffer the following:
• Pressure to participate in the bullying
• Anxiety about speaking to anyone about the bullying
• Powerlessness to stop bullying
• Vulnerability to becoming victimized
• Fear of associating with the victim, the bully, or the bully’s pals
• Guilt for not having defended the victim
Inside the Mind of the Bullied
Those who are bullied often feel...
• unaccepted by others,
• anxious and
They let people walk all over them and often do nothing to stand up for themselves.
They struggle with their grades and have attendance issues because they avoid coming to school, especially if their bully also attend their school.
They avoid being with people and are scared of being themselves because they've been put down so badly by others and are misunderstood.
They fear for their safety and avoid going online and using social media.
Those who have been bullied often have difficulty eating or sleeping.
Sometimes those who have been bullied become bullies themselves.
Inside the Bully's Mind
Believe it or not, Bullies often bully because they feel angry, depressed, afraid, anxious or they just don’t like themselves and lack acceptance.
A lot of people don’t realize that when they take part in physical acts of aggression that this is really a cry for help. They don't know how to ask for help so they hurt others to make themselves feel better. For this reason, many bullies are actually victims themselves.
Research shows, bullies are more likely to engage in risky or addictive behaviours.
Bullying is a cycle learned at home but it can be stopped.
If you're wondering if you're a bully, then ask yourself these important questions:
1. Do I try to make others feel bad so I can hide my own flaws?
2. Do I want to feel like I'm in control over others?
3. Do I take it out on others that I feel bad, unhappy or frustrated about myself?
4. Do I lash out at someone else that I think is weaker than me after I've been bullied?
5. Do I bully someone that I think is weaker than me after I've been yelled at?
6. Do I physically, verbally or socially attack others to make myself feel better?
7. Do I feel like others expect me to be mean to people and encourage me to bully?
8. Do I want others to see me as being tough?
9. Do I like to see others suffer?
10. Do I gossip about others just to have something to talk about?
11. Do I want people to think I'm intimidating so they will leave me alone?
12. Do I know how to engage with others in a non-threatening way?
