Green Dot Bystander Training 

November 2016 Green Dot Bystander TrainingMake a difference in the prevention of violence through free Green Dot training for EFSC students, faculty, and staff.

This engaging, activity-driven training empowers participants to identify the signs of power-based, personal violence, like bullying, stalking, dating violence, sexual harassment, and sexual assault. The training equips participants with tools to safely intervene from within their own level of comfort.

Each workshop participant will:
  • Engage in a basic education program that seeks to reduce power-based interpersonal violence
  • Gain awareness of proactive behaviors that establish violence intolerance 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 and in the community
  • Receive certification as a trained Green Dot Bystander and a FREE Green Dot T-shirt

Participants are also eligible to earn two service-learning hours (students) or MCC, Tenure, and Rank Advancement credit (faculty).
