Through our trainings and outreach,
we’re here to help passive bystanders turn into active ones.
This speech explains the Green Dot Program and why bystanders play such an important role in violence prevention. It is designed to inspire hope that participants can make a difference by inviting them to think about their role as bystanders in their community.
This interactive workshop expands on the overview speech by providing concepts and skills that participants are able to put into practice.
Green Dot Trainings teach participants how to be proactive bystanders and leaders in violence prevention. We define what a bystander is, learn how to recognize power-based personal violence and understand our personal barriers to intervening. We will explore and practice creative solutions for ending power based personal violence one incident at a time. And finally, we discuss ways to establish a cultural norm that violence will not be tolerated and everyone will do their part to help maintain a safe community.
