Green Dot Bystander Training 

Make a difference in the prevention of violence through free Green Dot training for EFSC students, faculty and staff.

Informed by social change theory, The Green Dot strategy is a comprehensive approach to the primary prevention of sexual assault and violence that capitalizes on the power of peer and cultural influence. The model targets our EFSC community members as potential agents of social change.

In this workshop participants will:
  • Engage in a basic education program that seeks to reduce power-based interpersonal violence
  • Gain awareness in pro-active behaviors that establish intolerance of violence as the norm
  • Practice skills that integrate moments of prevention within existing relationships and daily activities
  • Develop ways to introduce new norms within their sphere of influence at EFSC & in the community

Each significant stride in human rights has been fueled by and built upon a social movement consisting of enough individuals simply raising their voices and saying, "This is no longer acceptable."

Upcoming EFSC 2018 Training Sessions

Most sessions are for current EFSC students, faculty and staff, but when noted, some sessions are for faculty and staff only. For any session, faculty and staff must sign up through the College's training system to ensure proper tracking. Students should register using the form on this page. This is a voluntary workshop based on a national curriculum, which does not change, so you only need to attend once. If it conflicts with your work hours, please get permission from your supervisor to attend.

To request Bystander Training for your group (minimum 25 participants) or for questions about training, please contact Barbara Kennedy at greendot@easternflorida.edu or 321-433-5591.
