Stand Up! Active Bystander Training for Youth in Grades 4-6 

Wednesday February 21, 3-5pm, Cary Memorial Library

Learn how to recognize when you are a bystander — and how to interrupt harm. Active bystanders are not aggressive to the harm doer. Rather, they take responsible action to help people in need. Gain the skills to act when you witness something you feel is unfair, wrong, or troubling. Free.

Sponsored by Lexington Pride Coalition and Cary Memorial Library.

Free, but please register so we know how many people to expect:

Note: All are welcome, but keep in mind that this training is specially designed for grades 4-6. Participants should feel comfortable interacting with youth in that age group.
