Lace Up Stand Up (LUSU), through the implementation of leadership theory, addresses the root of bullying from its core and has developed a curriculum that empowers the entire community, not just the victims and bullies. Specifically, we believe that change can occur through teaching witnesses about bullying and leadership techniques. In this way, witnesses take an active role in preventing, intervening, and stopping bullying.
Our mission is to empower and unite youth against bullying. Lace Up Stand Up has developed a leadership curriculum that provides students with the tools that they need to combat bullying themselves through witness intervention techniques.
