Step Up: Sexual Assault Prevention and Bystander Awareness

Have you ever witnessed a situation that did not seem right, but you did not intervene and later wished you had? Perhaps you thought you should not get involved, or that someone else would help… or maybe you did not know how to help. In situations where someone might be harmed or is struggling, there is often someone else who notices the warning signs. What if that someone stepped up and helped? What if that someone made a difference in the outcome?
Step Up is a prosocial behavior and bystander intervention program that uses workshops and communications to teach community members how to be that someone who steps up and helps others. Launched at American University in summer 2014.
