Green Dot Safety Program
The Green Dot safety program is a bystander intervention program that gives participants the tools and resources to measurably reduce interpersonal violence in their community.
The program is based on the idea that most people will intervene or prevent an act of violence from occurring if they simply are inspired to do so and have resources they feel comfortable using.
Violence Prevention Programs offers engaging and empowering training of this program that cover:
- Building authentic, positive interpersonal relationships
- Promoting personal responsibility to maintain safe environments
In contrast to historical approaches to violence prevention that have focused on victims and perpetrators, the Green Dot strategy is predicated on the belief that individual safety is a community responsibility and shifts the lens away from victims/perpetrators and onto bystanders. The overarching goal is to mobilize a force of engaged and proactive bystanders.
