Green Dot

Bystander Intervention


Green Dot is a 90-minute training will introduce participants to the conversation of bystander awareness and intervention, providing tools to increase knowledge of and build skills that build proactive and reactive behaviors that reduce violence in our community.

The training is interactive, providing opportunities to discuss and practice different ways to intervene when a situation doesn’t feel safe or quite right to the bystander. By learning about direct intervention, distraction and delegation as techniques for bystander intervention, participants will leave feeling more aware and empowered around knowing that even small acts can make a huge difference in making our island a safe place to live where violence of any kind is simply not tolerated.

Green Dot trainers are also trained advocates and islanders: Nyn Grey and Tracie Mach.
