Green Dot Overview – Bystander Intervention Training

Green Dot Carleton Logo

Green Dot is a nationally recognized bystander intervention program that focuses on building the skills needed for individuals to take action when they see instances of power-based personal violence (stalking, intimate partner violence, and sexual assault). “Green Dots” are small choices that each of us make with our words or actions which help prevent harm from occurring in our community. The Green Dot motto is, “No one has to do everything, but everyone has to do something.”

The Green Dot interactive training for students is designed to equip participants with the necessary connections, knowledge and skills to increase their proactive and reactive bystander behaviors. The training focuses on defining the role of the bystander, recognizing behavior that leads to harm, and understanding personal obstacles to action.
