Bystander High School Presentations
BC Lions players have reached thousands of BC high school students in person since they began delivering the Be More Than a Bystander message in 2012. Each school visit consists of a large-scale assembly to the general student body plus a breakaway leadership session with student leaders. The program focusses on the importance of creating a safe environment in the school for young men and women, what it means to be more than a bystander, and how students can initiate change. Participants receive printed materials, framed in the context of a playbook which contains information on how they can help change attitudes and stop violence against women.
