Green Dot Bystander Training 

Session Cancellation Notice: Due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus emergency, remaining on-campus training sessions have been canceled for Spring Term 2020. Review our Green Dot resources page for ideas you can use to support this important initiative.

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."
